rose the body painter

San Francisco, CA


I am Rose the body painter living in the San Jose Bay area. I have been doing all kinds of art all of my life. I went to community college doing every creative class that I could find. I have done face painting for the last 12 years. Recently someone suggested that I go to Los Angeles to audition for a reality show which show-cased my body painting art. That opportunity has moved me to devote my artistic expression to the painting one or more bodies in bursts of creative expression. My 36 finished projects have turned out beautifully. I chose my best effort to date to submit to you. Please remember that what the models do with their bodies adds to the the painting making the artistic expression that the viewer enjoys. My approach is to select a painting imagining how the models will deliver it. Dynamic body art is a New Age descendant of beautiful canvases. I am glad to be defining what it should be. When bare skin with a bold design, transforms a beautiful person into a lizard or a cyborg, the viewer is amazed. This is one of the oldest art forms that is finding a renaissance.


i love anything that is artistic but there is not any thing like the human form whether in clothing costume or paint i love the to work on skin. i like really clean design and it shows in my work i get inspired by things i see weather it is a pattern on a billboard or even on a mans tie i get it all day. Bright colors and geometric shapes turn me on too
