About the W.B.A

website wbabanner2016


The World Bodypainting Association was founded on October 12, 2001 by Alex Barendregt, who is also responsible for the creation of the World Bodypainting Festival.

The main focus and goal of the association is to promote and bring awareness to the art of bodypainting, while building a worldwide community and network of artists and supporters. It acts as an informational provider into the world of bodypainting through latest news, events and offers an insight to companies and product growth for the industry at large. To date, the association holds over 500 members and continues to grow and connect creative minds together to keep pushing the limits.

The association looks after the interests of artists who have either made bodypainting their profession, or who just paint for a hobby, including photographers, models and video-film makers.
