The most common question people ask me when they hear I´m a body painter, is what body painting is used for. It´s art most people have seen in some form somewhere, but it seems a little vague a concept why and what it is created for. Are you wondering about that too?
My clientele is very mixed and I offer services for both private clients and businesses. Maybe you wouldn´t believe it, but Body painting is actually suitable for so many different things and different people. I wouldn´t like to categorise anyone, but I tried to divide my clients into rough segments.
So here are 6 customer groups who body painting is excellent for.
Oh my god, this is going to be so fab! That was my first thought when producer Taina Sirola called me and asked me to join the team for a TV commercial for Veikkaus. I was so excited to hear the stars of the film and my models would be horses! I had never painted horses before, but I was up for the challenge.
These fun loving images were originally created for Finnish shoe brand Minna Parikka.
These pictures show how perfectly body painting can be used within fashion advertising to support the original designs. This campaign has been shared in numerous blogs around the world and it received the Golden Prize at Vuoden Huiput (The Best of Finnish Advertising and Design competition).
By creating colourful images with body paint of course!
That is exactly what Valio did. Valio is a Finnish dairy giant, whose super idea to promote their new flavoured fromage frais was wrapped around body painting. The advertising agency Bob the Robot contacted me for the campaign and asked me to help create the visuals promoting strawberry and vanilla. What a fun job and an amazing team of professionals, and the outcome I think certainly shows creativity, clever copy combined with matching paintings. Awesome!

The most common question people ask me when they hear I am a body painter, is what body painting can be used for. The list is almost endless - performances, events, parties, fashion, trade shows, music videos, photoshoots etc. On this post I'm now concentrating on one of the most interesting uses of body painting - advertising and marketing.
At the end of last year I got a body painting request from advertising agency Nordenswan & Siirilä. The brief was to create body painting on acrobats for the new visual look of an IT company. At first I thought "Really?" and immediately after that "REALLY!". What an amazing idea. Little did I know at the time how amazing though.
