The occasion was NYC Bodypainting Day , organized by Andy Golub and Young Naturists America, and, after spending a couple of hours watching dozens of artists do incredible things to these gloriously nude "canvases", who, as a whole, boasted an extraordinary range of body types, I'd have to say the banner is correct. Not that every work of bodypainting here was a great piece of art, though most were pretty amazing. It's just that after a while you don't see, and think about, these nude physical people in the way that you're used to—as sexy, say, or imperfect, or unappealing, or sensational. Suddenly they all look good, or at least they all look different, but in different ways than before, and it made me wish that I and everyone else could appreciate and instantly see the beauty in all bodies as a matter of course. Anyway, the scene at Dag Hammarskjod Plaza was pretty wild, with loads of creative energy from the artists—there were apparently 75 painters on hand—and an infectious sense of liberation, and exhilaration, from the models.

For centuries, artists have been obsessed with painting the natural beauty of the nude female form. Yet, somewhere along the way, some ditched the canvas, going from painting the body to painting the body. And thus body art, the art world's naughty take on "Where's Waldo," was born. Emma Hack is one of the key figures in the contemporary skin art world, meticulously hand painting naked bodies to match their environments so much so that they nearly disappear. Pressed against dizzying patterns and vibrant colors, Hack's models are all but subsumed by their environments. But shift you're eyes and you'll notice the familiar shape of a human form outlined emerge like a ghost from the swirling colors and shapes. When in school, the Australian artist worked creatively with face paint and makeup, later extending her hobby down below the neck.
The nude figure is a tradition in Western art , and has been used to express ideals of male and female beauty and other human qualities. It was a central preoccupation of Ancient Greek art , and after a semi-dormant period in the Middle Ages returned to a central position in Western art with the Renaissance. Athletes, dancers, and warriors are depicted to express human energy and life, and nudes in various poses may express basic or complex emotions such as pathos.
