Amsterdam Bodypaint Art

Jun 03, 2018
12pm until 6pm
NSDM-plein 85, 1033 WC
Artists and models donate 25 euros (free for spectators)

Amsterdam Bodypaint Art is a colourful event where the human body simply transforms into a blank canvas! Artists of various skill levels will paint on human bodies of all shapes, sizes and ages!

This year's theme: Freedom

This year the theme is “Freedom”, especially freedom of expression without limits. This is particularly meaningful for all artists and models collaborating on the creation of bodypaint works of art. The event does not require full nudity, so bodypaint models are free to participate with whatever degree of nudity they are comfortable with.

For the six-hour event, humans come together in Amsterdam and celebrate the fact that we came into the world unclothed and you don't have to be wearing clothes to be adorning a masterpiece.

There will be competitions for the best amateur bodypaint artists and for the best professional bodypaint artist. Whether you are a professional artist or a model, it doesn’t matter. There will be bodies of all shapes and sizes and painting skills will be as varied as the event will be colourful! 

Amsterdam Bodypaint Art, music, food and an afterparty

The event will be accompanied by live music and there will be food and drinks available for all. The event welcomes movie-makers, photographers, writers and any members of the media. There will be an epic afterparty at the Noorderlicht café.

For the first time ever, the art studio of choice is  NDSM Fuse, a former shipping company, in collaboraton with the Noorderlicht café and the Human Connection Arts Foundation.

The event is fully open to the public with free admittance, but booking is required. You can reserve your place on the Amsterdam Bodypaint Art website. All artists and models donate 25 euros.
