Amazing World of Body Painting
BY RIINA LAINE
Are you having a launch party or are you setting up a stand for a trade show and you want to make sure people notice your brand? Do you want to come up with something that gets people talking and invites them to get to know what you're offering?
Or are you organizing an event, a corporate party, an awards gala or a festival and you're thinking what kind of entertainment to have to really impress your guests and visitors? Do you want to wow them, show them something extra special and eye-catching and make them remember your party even the morning after?
Here's the idea for you - original and unique living, breathing, moving pieces of art that fit your brand and highlight the theme of your event like nothing else. Live body painting fascinates everyone and it's a guaranteed way to catch everyone's eyes.
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.

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.
Wonder Women - The WAU Project exhibition opened in Helsinki city centre two weeks ago. I am so grateful to have this opportunity to show these 12 works and share the stories of these amazing women in the artworks. So empowering and it's touching to see how some visitors have moved to tears because they feel they can relate to these Wonder Women. The feedback has been absolutely wonderful.

The Non-smoking campaign Body Tells the Story I painted for Pfizer few year ago proved to be an amazingly successful concept. Original campaign took place in Helsinki and it was then re-created next year for SuomiAreena in Pori, Finland. Again the campaign was picked up by many news sites and social media. Thought-provoking paintings really pass the message to the viewer and makes you think twice about smoking and what it does to your body.
This year I wasn't competing which was totally new to me. I had thought I would just chill out and enjoy other artists' work, but turns out my week was full of action and activities, I didn't even have time to go for a refreshing swim in the lake! Hot and sunny week included my first workshop at the World Bodypainting Academy program, my fine art body painting exhibition, parties and jury duty at the world awards. So much fun!
