The 19th year is history
"Colours are fading,
Bodypainting is evanescent,
so is the World Bodypainting Festival.
Thanks my wonderful bodypainting family, awesome crew, hard supporters and sponsors and the many visitors for an unforgettable 19th World Bodypainting Festival in Pörtschach, Wörthersee in AUSTRIA.
We are now preparing for the European Bodypainting Festival, the partner event taking place from August 12th - 14th in Lisse, near Amsterdam in the Netherlands. I hope that after that festival we are able to announce a possible next years date of the "World Bodypainting Festival" in Pörtschach, Austria.
Please follow us on Social Media for more further news and many photos and videos from this years Event.
With colourful greetings", Alex Barendregt - Founder and Director of the WBF
