The "World Bodypainting Association (WBA) was founded out of the european association, that exists already since 2001.
Aim of this network is it to establish the Body art as a reknowned artform and to propse this stunning art to the public.
So the WBA brings together artists, Models, photographers as well as companies to offer the possibility to work in a supporting area and to develop new projects together.
Initiated was the foundation of Alex Barendregt, who is also the creator of the "European and then the World Bodypainting Festival®" , which has become a major yearly event in Austria and is now meeting point for the entire WBA community.
In the last year the association was able to rise the importance of the Artform of Bodypainting, but it is necessary to go this way further, to present this artform to the public.
The World Bodypainting Association counted about 600 members from 49 different nations in 2013 and connects the most important industry partner in the area of Bodypainting, Make-up and Special effects, as well as artists, photographers and models.
