About the World Bodypainting Festival

The World Bodypainting Festival in Austria (WBF) is a melting pot of artistic performance, art and lifestyle. For almost two decades artists from over 40 nations have been converging on a small town in Austria to compete for World Champion titles in bodypainting. The Championships are the centre of many creative projects over the week long festival that attracts up to 30,000 visitors.

The massive growth of this event has been the platform for the development of an art form that was little known twenty years ago. Through its constant drive in creating new possibilities for artists and presenting them with new challenges, the WBF has been the catalyst for the explosion in numbers and quality of artists who now call themselves bodypainters. With its long tradition the WBF is considered the founder of the modern bodypainting art movement.
