A brief history of body painting

Although contemporary body painting is associated with advertising or the world of art, in fact, its history goes back many centuries. The earliest body paintings were performed by ancient tribes and as studies show, similar rituals have taken place in different parts of the world, albeit of varying intensity and form. The Aboriginal people in Australia painted their bodies differently, indigenous Africans painted differently, American Indians, people of India or Japan and even Europeans all painted their bodies differently. There were many different reasons for body painting such as initiation rituals which took place for adulthood, marriage, hunting, birth, death, war and for underlining a social position or aesthetic reasons. In today’s world, these traditions have remained in the form of make-up or the now, increasingly popular tattoo. Over time, and with artistic exploration, the art of body painting has moved on to the stage and into the gallery, where in various forms it has survived to
this day. Today, the art of body painting is more than just a type of characterization, found only in theatrical conditions – these amazing “works” on the skin have stormed art galleries, the world of advertising and cultural events, showing, in an extraordinary way, the beauty of the human body. Contemporary masters of body art, however, go even further, trying to blur the boundaries between what is real and what is not. Their designs delight showing their ability to communicate – because with skillfully applied paint, the human skin can change into a shell, denim material or a bird’s feathers in just a few minutes. The only limit is imagination and the master’s skill.
