The 2016 World Body painting Festival was held July 1-3 in picturesque Wörthersee, Austria, with the musical theme of “Bodies and Beats.” The Festival included several body painting workshops, a zombie crawl and the 19th World Championship body painting contest.
An incredible piece titled “The Wolf” is currently stunning people around the world via a video posted to the artist’s YouTube channel. A lone wolf howls before a snowy backdrop, with sounds of a moaning wind completing the effect.
Johannes Stötter, the artist who created the work, is a completely self-taught body painter who has won several world championship body painting competitions since first displaying his work in 2009. He is well-known for his nature-based work, painting bodies of all shapes and sizes to blend in with trees, rocks, animals and fruits.
