This weekend QBAS was back up in Cooroy for the Cooroy Fusion Festival. Fairy Raine & Carleen Adorn painted 3 models to promote the Photography awards & display from the Australian Body Arts Festival – ABAF last month. Tim from Dreamcoat Photography joined us to capture our day & fantastic models
QBAS artists and models visited the Whoniverse on the Saturday, and Lord of The Rings on the Sunday (via a quick detour to take part in the Supanova parade). As usual they drew lots of attention and made quite a few new friends.
There was plenty of body painting during the year with Supanovas, competitions and of course artists’ own business projects but QBAS had not had a painting meeting. Christmas was the obvious theme, this time with a circus twist.
The June QBAS meeting carried the theme of the Zodiac. Our artists painted 11 signs of the zodiac: Aries, Taurus, Capricorn, Sagitarius, Aquarius, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo, Leo, Cancer onto 8 fabulous models.
In honour of Stan Lee visiting Supanova in Brisbane this year, Qld Body Artists Society focused on body painting Marvel characters on both days of the popular convention. As usual our stand drew a lot of attention and our models patiently posed for many photo requests.
Supanova 2017 Gold Coast – Body painting cosplay theme Toy Story, He-Man, Watchmen
Queensland Body Artists Society members body painted up a storm at the first meeting for 2017. The theme was “Colours” where artists challenged themselves by limiting their pallette to one colour (plus white & black).
Our last Qld Body Artists Society meeting for the year 2016 (where did the time go?) was just a little one, November being such a busy month for everyone. However we still managed to create a stylish addition to any Pompadour Ball, don’t you think?
For the May 2016 Queensland Body Artists Society meeting a few of us got together for a painting session to the theme “Rusty and Forgotten”. Photographer Shaun Gibbs joined us for the day to capture the final results.
Qld Body Artists Society paints at Bloomhill Cancer Care fundraising event. A lot of fun was had with an audience that may not usually come this close and personal to body painted models.
As part of the Ipswich festival Art Beat showcases arts and crafts to the public, and once again Qld Body Artists added their bit of colour to the event. Once the stalls are packed up a street parade, lit with colourful lanterns provides the perfect stage for our models to bring their characters to life.
The last Zombie Walk in Brisbane CBD (as far as we know). It was a sad and quiet affair, but members of Qld Body Artists Society were there to zombify anyone who wanted it.
This year the Qld Body Artists’ stand was back at the Brisbane Convention Centre. Supanova is our artists’ (and definitely models too) favourite playground. Body painting all our favourite characters.

The QBAS stand at Supanova Brisbane drew plenty of attention as our artists transformed models into characters during their live body painting demonstrations. It didn’t take long before our models wrecked a fair bit of havoc once they were released among the public.
Nature inspired body painting workshop by the Queensland Body Artists Society (QBAS) February 2016
Yesterday some of our artists contributed to the colour of Arts in the Park at Logan River Parklands. Thanks to Logan City Council for inviting us to this great family event on Father’s Day.
The June meeting our artists and models tried their hands at a favourite TV series. We had a great deal of fun creating the characters with paint, special effects and costuming.
Our cheerful artists represented QBAS at Fusion Festival in Cooroy. A brilliant, sunny day for the whole family, and our human canvases to add to the colour of the day.
We entertained the public with live demonstration of body painting, then our models mingled with people and had lots of photos taken. Even the Ipswich Major joined in the fun. In the evening we joined the lantern parade, a lovely way to end a very colourful day.
April 17 & 18 QBAS artists can be found at the Gold Coast Exhibition and Convention Centre painting characters for SUPANOVA 2015. Come visit our artists and models at Stall 51 (In the large warehouse where all the retailers are). http://www.supanova.com.au

The seasons have been the inspiration for many artworks over the centuries. Our artists had a bit of a play with their interpretations at a recent QBAS meeting.
Welcome to the world of the fey, the mythical and the arcane. Our artists made fairytales come true at this QBAS meeting.
Characters from graphic novels, Marvel, DC, and others are always popular in the costuming world. A popular twist is to have the costume painted on. Of course our artists couldn’t resist the challenge to create their favourite hero or villian.
