Dozens of artists and models shed their clothes and painted their bodies for the annual Body Painting day in Manhattan on Sunday. (July 25 2021)
Stripped completely naked, 45 models were painted from head to toe by 26 artists in Union Square.
The event is organized by Andy Golub, who 10 years ago, was arrested along with his model for nude bodypainting in Times Square.
Several hundred people gathered to watch the models be painted. And as the crowd marched onlookers gawked. Some rolled their eyes, some people were shocked but most had a smile on their face when the saw the human canvasses pass.
The group marched from Union Square to Washington Square Park and were followed by a massive crowd of amateur and professional photographers, all clamoring for the best shot.
