Australia hosts the global phenomenon that is world body painting this week, with members of cultures from around the globe meeting in one place to show off their colourful nakedness. From clowns and performers, to warriors and priests, we've been using body paint since time immemorial. As our diversity and technology has increased in magnitude, so has the ways we adorn our bodies with pigment. From looking scary to looking seductive, dressing ourselves in vibrancy and pattern has all manner of creative reactions. Showing off their flesh alongside multidisciplined DJs and event hosts, the festival is a great party for all. Check out this selection of photos from the festival.
