A collaboration between body-painter Sammi Lim and photographer Shahril Saifol, it features 10 image panels depicting subjects draped in painted-on black dresses.

The show at Chulia Court in Lebuh Chulia is among the ongoing George Town Festival 2016's calendar of events. It is open for viewing daily (10am to 5pm) till Aug 28.

According to Lim, an arts and culture journalist and mixed media artist, the full-scale exhibition had its origins in a playful photoshoot between friends.

"During an art jam, I painted a dress onto myself, and Shah took a picture of me. When I uploaded it onto social media, our friends were amazed that it wasn't a real dress," she shared, adding that things took off from there.

The photos feature women of different backgrounds and varying body types, to honour diversity and versatility.

Shahril, the founder of Light Show Photography, said, "I aimed to capture the most flattering angles for each subject, and make sure that the photos turned out tasteful and graceful."

Lim revealed that they let the models choose their own black dress designs, as they wanted to respect each individual's own fashion sense.

It’s called “blackout tattoo”. The style likely came from the “cover up” technique, when a regretted tattoo is obscured with dark ink.

"Our models behaved very differently before and after being painted. After the session, they got up from their seats, looked in the mirror and openly admired themselves.

"It's empowering for both them and me," noted Lim, adding that the project also tries to examine body image issues.

These Chinese body paintings are really amazing! They are made on beautiful naked women and they are very sexy too. This is the best body art I’ve ever seen…
I think these are funny and fantastic and I feel so sorry that they disappeared after the girls took showers… Body art can be so beautiful sometimes…

With most of the shoots requiring partial nudity, some models were understandably shy, though the pair's professionalism and expertise eventually made them feel at ease.

"It is our hope that people will take away positive messages about body image, personal style and feeling comfortable in your own skin.

"Most importantly, every girl deserves to feel good about herself, like how she feels when wearing her favourite black dress," conluded Lim.

After Penang, the exhibition will move on to the Causeway Exchange in Singapore, where the duo is set to conduct a workshop.

Captivating Human Body Painting By Chadwick And Spector

Living on the verge of art, body paint has always been a provocative trait characteristic of either indigenous cultures or the fashion world. As time goes by, body painting is becoming increasingly popular and used in various commercial and mainstream activities. The art of body painting has diversified so much, as to have its own sub-categories, ranging over traditional body painting, fashion body painting, fine body painting and even graffiti on body. The shared trait of all body painting styles is that they use body as canvas, emphasizing the transforming potential of the human skin.

The Amazing Body Arts. There is nothing quite like the allure of body art on women. I’m not talking so much about permanent body art like tattoos (which also can be nice), but instead the use of body paint. It’s so versatile. You can use it to dress up like your favourite character, pretend like you’re wearing a swimsuit, support the local sports team, advertise, or simply go artistic.  There are even competitions around the globe where people compete for prizes.
