Painters in Paradise: body paint designs

A runway show without clothes may not sound like a fashion show at all, but for this event, it’s all about showing skin, Sonia Farmer reports in this article for The Nassau Guardian.

Painters in Paradise—the catwalk show featuring elaborate body paint designs—has come around again, and this time featured renowned body painters Selena of UFAD (Unique Art and Facial Design) and Italia Williams of EyeCandy Studio along with guest artists Stefan Davis of Airbrush Junkies and Mandi Ilene of Orlando, Florida, will present a show so stunning you’ll forget the models are wearing nothing but their own skin and some undergarments for modesty.

Adding to the excitement of the evening will be an opportunity for the guests to see the process in action during what organizers call a visual “Live Jam Session”. “Four artists will showcase their skills and talent live for the viewing audience, giving them the unique chance to see the human body transform into a masterpiece of body art right before their eyes,” says Selena of UFAD.

This original show—the likes of which are seen only in Vegas—will also do their part in giving back. Part of the proceeds for the evening will be donated through the HLB Foundation to the Elizabeth Estate Children’s Home.

So come out and support local talent and see what Bahamians have to offer by way of innovative and edgy design. For Selena, being included in last year’s show afforded her the opportunity to share her talents in many ways.

“Since my show last year I have had the opportunity to work the Sandals, Royal Bahamian Resort and Atlantis Resort,” she says. “I painted the performers for the opening and closing number at Islands of the World Fashion Week (Bahamas), at the Bahamas International Film Festival, and at events held by Gray Cliff, Bank of the Bahamas, Bennigans, and many privately held events. Recently I was even called to do a dry run for a wedding. Life is good!”

The event commences at The Ocean View Suite, Super Club Breezes Resort, Cable Beach, on November 27th, 2011 at 6pm on the dot.

Tickets are $25.00 in advance and $35.00 at the door. Because the event is catered only 250 persons will be allowed to attend. Tickets can be purchased at EyeCandy Studio (Rosetta Street) and Airbrush Junkies (Mall at Marathon) and for five or more tickets, they can be delivered by calling 468-0782.
