I am an artist that specializes in Face and Body Painting for artistic and corporate work. On a daily basis I create beautiful and realistic works of art on the bodies of women and men, resulting in stunning visual illusions. I have been painting people for over seven years and have worked with many diverse businesses and photographers in that time. I also paint alongside with my business partner Fabrizio Federico.
What we do...
We are currently looking for local companies, models, theater groups, photographers, and clubs interested in utilizing our talents to promote their business or special event. Beautiful women and men painted in spectacular designs or company logos is a great form of promotion that is sure to bring in a high amount of revenue and traffic for your business. Companies and venues of any type can utilize our talents including nude body painting for adult clubs, and casinos - your business logo printed on to your model will make peoples heads turn.
I am a Face and Body Painter with five years experience. I have worked through out the EU and USA.
My past projects have included commercial work for Lady Mary Chariteistis, Moore Chiropractic Clinic, Kel Truck, Moss Bros, Mint Casinos, Christian Audgiger and Always Riding.
I have worked in collaboration with the Artist/Model Janis Radfailidou on a section of her project, which was later shown in Leeds Art Gallery.
I have done special effects make up for use in the photo essay by the director Iram Kham.

Information for photographers...?
I am happy to work either in a studio or on location
Where will I work...?
I will work any where. Literally any where.
What languages are your team fluent in...?
My team are fluent in English, Italian, and basic Spanish.
Information for models....
I use water based, non toxic, water based high standard cosmetic paint. The paint can be easily removed with soap and water at the end of the shoot. I am able to send a patch test kit out to models so that they can test the paint for skin sensitivity before the shoot. Models should remove body hair before the day of the shoot to ensure smooth skin. Models should drink plenty of water the day before the shoot, ex-foliate and moisture well. The night before the shoot and morning of the shoot models should eat lightly. The morning of the shoot models should take a cool shower and not apply any lotion to the skin. For nude shoots a "pro shield" is worn between the legs to cover the models lips. The model is able to apply and remove this herself.
About the Paints...
We use professional FDA and EU approved face and body paints.
The paints are non toxic, water based, professional high quality,
They wash off easily with a little warm water. No need for special removers.
The colors are bright enough to last all day or night.
It is also possible to apply a barrier to the paint, enabling them to last longer, making them smudge sweat and even water resistant.
I usually charge upwards of 150.00GBP for a full body painting.
I can highly recommend Ian Shipley.
