It almost time for body painting to take over New York City with the 3rd annual Bodypainting Day to take place on Saturday July 9, 2016 at 12:00 PM EDT.

What started three years ago under the beautiful trees of Central Park has blossomed into an international event with Bodypainting Day being celebrated in New York City on July 9, 2016, in Amsterdam on August 20, 2016 and in San Francisco on October 23, 2016.

In New York City, this year’s Bodypainting Day will take place at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza which is located at 47th Street and 2nd Avenue in New York City were 100 body painting artists will paint 100 nude models between 12:00 pm and 4:00 pm.

The public is invited to watch as the artists turn the models into beautiful works of art.

Some of the artists that will participate in Bodypainting Day 2016 include Andy Golub, who organized the first Bodypainting Day in 2014.

Andy Golub had been painting models on the streets of New York since 2009, but was often harassed by the police and was kicked out of Times Square in 2009 for painting a male and female model wearing g-strings. After contacting a lawyer, he decided to fight police harassment. In 2011, Andy Golub painted fully nude models in Times Square and was promptly arrested. After legal proceedings, NYC legal department informed him that he could, in fact, legally paint fully nude men or women, day or night, on any public street of New York City and all charges against him were dismissed.

Breanna Cooke is a body painter and costumer artist who combines her artistic skills to make mythical creatures come to life.

It will be interesting to see what type of creatures she creates at this year Bodypainting Day.

An international body painter and a spoke person for body painting is artist Craig Tracy, who is also a judge on the Skin Wars body painting television show, a jury member at the World Bodypainting Festival and one of the cofounding artist at the first NYC Bodypainting Day in 2014 and each subsequent event.

Among his notable works is the body painting project for the Save China’s Tigers project and his unique ability to camouflage models within paintings.

There will be 100 body painting artists at Bodypainting Day 2016, so if you are in New York City on Saturday, July 9, be sure to stop by and watch as these very talented artists create living, breeding works of art.
