Body Painting

Living, breathing works of art.

Unique creations for the human canvas. Professional body painting at it's best.

Poppy & Perle have contributed creatively to images for charity campaigns, including Life Ball and PETA and painted models and dancers at venues like the Saatchi Gallery and the British Library. Body painting brings a high impact, striking element to photo shoots for brand awareness, living statues and walkabout acts at events, music videos and film projects.


Our body painters combine skills with paint, textures, prosthetics and styling techniques to transform talent, entertainers and staff. From brief consultation to design process and delivery on the day, we are committed to effective communication, expansive creative vision, and attention to detail in everything we do.
