Cool “Art in Motion” – Mysterious, captivating and exotic contemporary body designs

Anyone advanced in traditional and contemporary arts and watching the show tonight (4/09/03) would have thought somehow that the Papua New Guinean young artists reversed their actions from being simple talented and fine young artists to “fun” artists.

But for University Art Lecturer who attended the design show, it meant enhancing painting skills and boosting confidence among up and coming young artists.

The third hit at Players Music Lounge on Thursday night saw exotic contemporary designs such as the Bird Of Paradise...painted on one of the models

Traditionally body painting was part of PNG’s hundreds of fascinating cultures. Originally body paintings include only face painting in some places, while in some other there was the tattooing of faces and rubbing mud or black ashes all over the body.

While the rest of the world slowly embraces globalization, we try to keep up with the new world by adopting new ways of doing things.

Art and culture is what made up the basics of a traditional society in PNG. Our way traditional activities were based upon our culture which in turn was practiced upon arts.

For example, fishing, cooking, gardening, making canoe, a house and dancing was viewed traditionally as part of arts. Carving, weaving, making fires and rain are part of the cultural heritage passed on from generation to generations and remembered to art of performing.

A coroporate sponsor logo as shown by this model was painted by the artist.

The idea of arts in Papua New Guinea has changed so much with time and urbanization. Also with new generation come new ideas. Just recently companies have initiated the idea of a “Body Painting Competition” which is performed ever Thursday night at the Players Music Lounge.

On Thursday night spectators at the Players Music Lounge witnessed yet another successful night of spectacular displays of logo and contemporary body designs.

Young and enthusiastic male artists took part in the event – the third hit of the “Nivea body art race to find out who the best artist in town is.

There are only three hits left before the final event to decide the winner of the K2,500, presumably the first price, however, the comp had kicked off with such a high fever as everyone became fascinated by the staging – believed to be the first of its kind.
