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.
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.

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.
The first meeting for 2015 was set to the theme of Animalia. Those familiar with the book will recognise some of the characters our artists brought to life.
Christmas is always a fun theme. For the last meeting of 2014, our members put a Steampunk spin on the traditional theme.

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.
“The Countess von Acrimosa invites you to share in an evening of Victorian splendour, to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of her dear Count’s staking ‘accident’. Dinner will be a formal affair held at Moments in Vintage, Northgate.” After all, just because you’re dead, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the finer…
