What You’ll Do
Though far from conventional, the human body can actually be the most expressive canvas. You’ll learn just that during this body-painting class, where you’ll pair up with a classmate and take turns being the painter and the canvas. Danny Setiawan, founder of DenArt NY Studio, will lead the session and assist you and your partner with design ideas and painting techniques. There’s just one twist: all lights in the studio are turned off, save for the glow of UV bulbs, which illuminate the special paint on participants’ skin.
Watch an Expert Artist Work
The evening begins with a 30-minute demonstration from a professional body-painting artist.
Be the Painter and the Canvas
Using special UV paint, you’ll create a design on your partner’s body, then switch roles and serve as the glowing canvas yourself.
Pose for Photos
Photographers will be on-hand for an optional photo shoot at the end of the session.
Master Painter, Co-founder of DenArt studio
Danny Setiawan wanted to make an impact with his art, so he tossed aside the traditional canvas and turned to another medium: the human body. This shift to body painting certainly paid off; Danny has made numerous television appearances, worked for clients like Roberto Cavalli and Kings of Leon, and even won the Unique Art Award from the Society of Unique Artists in 2011. He also runs DenArt studio, a body-painting and photography studio open to the general public.
