Bodypainting Day impacts everyone involved from the artists and the models to the thousands that watch it live to the millions that see it on-line.

We stretch the boundaries of what is permitted, what is appropriate, what is art and what is an acceptable body (they all are). It gives people a sense of power and we all share in something that breaks all the rules and creates an even playing field.

Huge groups of nude models are painted by talented artists in the most public spaces in cities around the world.

Washington Square Park in New York City, Museumplein in Amsterdam, Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco and Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin. The theme for 2017 is "Humanity."

60 artists and 60 models come to New York's Washington Square Park. After four hours of painting, we have a photo shoot at the iconic Arch, a march through Greenwich Village and a double-decker bus tour to share with the art with the rest of the New York City!

We are proud to return to Museumplein for Amsterdam Bodypainting Day on August 12th. 50 artists will paint 50 models, by a naked march and boat ride around the city.

We are also returning to San Francisco, where 50 artists will paint 50 models at Pier 35, followed by a march to Fisherman's Wharf.

Our newest event is Berlin Bodypainting Day on August 19th. Over 25 artists will paint 25 models. We are happy to add our event to this great city.

We need your support to make these important events happen. There are many costs including insurance, travel, rental fees, tents, supplies, signage, security and event staff, website, social media and much more.

On the surface Bodypainting Day is a fun, colorful event. But it is rooted in a far deeper philosophy of empowerment and connection. 

By supporting Bodypainting Day, you will help spread human connection far and wide and make the world just a little more positive, a little more accepting and a little more loving.

Bodypainting Day celebrates our diversity and body acceptance. Our models come in various ages, sizes, races and genders, just like every body else.

It is an opportunity to bring to the public, the diverse artistic approaches and various body types. Bodypainting Day redefines beauty, acceptance and art. Please contribute and be a part of all that is positive and creative.
