Bonnie Stanley – Bodypainting Photographer

Bonnie Stanley Bodypainting PhotographerI have a great passion for photographing the art of bodypainting. Bodypainting is the one form of art that the end product does not remain, does not live on upon completion and yet it is created and displayed on a living canvas. By capturing this temporal art it can live on for others to enjoy long after the muddy colors was down the drain.

For the past two years I have had the privilege of working with two of the best bodypainters in the world, Scott Fray and Madelyn Greco of LivingBrush Bodypaint. In 2011 they took the titles of  The North American Bodypaint Champions and The World Bodypaint Champions taking #1 in both competitions. They are the current Guinness Book of World Records holder for Most Bodies Painted and Scott Fray was the Premier Inductee to the International Fine Art Body Painting Association in 2011.

The works of art begin with outlines drawn on the body. Sketches only the artists can understand. Then slowly, over a 8-10 hour period those lines are transformed into a masterful work of art. Just when you think it is finished the additions of swoops, swirls and dots turn it into something even more wonderful. Watching this process is captivating and truly amazing.

Please note there is NO digital art in any of the photographs. All photographs are of an actual bodypainting.
