In Issue 73 (July/August 2008) Make-Up Artist magazine told you about the World Bodypainting Festival® in Seeboden, Austria, which took place July 14-20. Now South Korea gets a chance to see what organizers call “living art.”

From August 25-31, visitors will converge on the second largest-stadium in Asia, in Daegu, South Korea. A full week of workshops includes lessons on bodypainting, special make-up effects, facepainting, photography, make-up and airbrush. People of all ages can experience the live music, international show acts and Asian cuisine. Mid-week, on August 27, don’t miss the costumed fantasy ball, Body Circus®. The festival culminates in an outdoor event presenting the winners of the Asian Awards and semi-pro categories, in the World Cup Stadium of Daegu. To learn more, visit
