Koh Samui, Thailand’s paradise island resort, aims to compete as a venue for top international body painting competitions, such as the International Body Painting Festival in Germany, World Body Painting Festival in Austria and the Canadian Body Painting Festival.
The event is expected to attract both local and international tourists, and stimulate interest in Thai art. It will bring together artists and models from countries including Austria, Germany, Romania, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, the UK, the US and Thailand. Together they will create exquisite art on Koh Samui’s beaches under the theme ‘Preserve the Paradise.’
The audience can be a part of the event, as well. There will be nail painting, henna painting, doll painting, and painting on recycled goods. Participants can also be models or paint on themselves.
Koh Samui is one of the most important tourism spots in the Gulf of Thailand. Tourists come for its fabulous beaches and paradise ambience, making it perfect for art events.
The Samui International Body Painting Competition will be held on the weekend of March 26 and 27, from 17.00 to 23.00 hrs in front of The Buddy Oriental Samui Beach Resort on Lamai Beach. Entry is free.
