A Celebration of Artistry and Beauty
7 July 2016 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

Hosted by the beautiful Rebecca Romijn, "Skin Wars" is a competition show that pits body painting artists against each other in a series of challenges. Verdicts are delivered by a panel of judges.

Each season, the producers try to throw more varied, more difficult, and more imaginative tasks at the artists. Such challenges can include camouflage work (where they attempt to make the model disappear into a background image), themed challenges (which can involve anything from super heroes to scenes from nature), or images inspired by the artists' own stories.

I love this show because it really illustrates the incredible talents of these artists. Painting is difficult, in general, but painting on a curved, movable surface presents some specific, harder challenges.

They also use different types of models. On one episode, they painted inspiring images on breast cancer survivors, which was very empowering and extremely beautiful.

It's nice to have television shows that celebrate artistry and beauty. "Skin Wars" is one of the best.
