GERT LEEFTINK

Netherlands

26 years ago I started  painting  bodies and created almost 700 different artworks since then. I use my fantasy and creativity in my  designs who are mostly  abstract and an expression of creating with paint  at that particular moment.  I won the 3rd place in the category „brush and sponge“  at the world bodypaintfestival . To get more experience  in working with details  I became a certified make-up artist. Besides bodypainting and make-up my passion is photography. I am the photographer of all my  artwork. During painting I already think about the composition in the photo. The last years I am asked beiing a judge for bodypaint contests in the Netherlands and had the honour of judging at  the Europeon Bodypaint Festival. I love trying  to find new ways  and bring myself out of comfort and see what happens in the moment of painting itself.
