Craig Tracy Bodypainting

Craig Tracy Bodypainting

The Craig Tracy Gallery at 827 Royal Street is where my fascination with bodypainting began.  This is a gallery of fine art, not to be confused with most of the mainstream bodypaint work seen around the world.  Craig’s work is mesmerizing, meticulous, and meaningful.  Craig’s work is so skillfully crafted that there is little to no need for digital manipulation, it is the real deal.  I like to say what an honor it was to be asked to model for the Craig Tracy Gallery, especially considering very few men grace those walls.  However, the truth is that I invited myself.

I contacted Craig by email immediately after seeing the gallery three years ago.  He wrote back politely letting me know that he preferred female models but that occasionally he would work with experienced male models.  I set out on an incredible journey to gain the required experience.  It was an experience that led me throughout the United States and afforded me the opportunity to work with other talented artists like Liliana Sepulveda Hopman, Angela Rene Roberts, Tashi Hoonery, Anthony Dortch, and Brandon McGill.

I returned to the Craig Tracy Gallery on Royal street with photos in hand to prove of my worthiness.  It was our first face to face meeting.  I found him to be an approachable, intelligent man close to my own age.  He smiled at the photos and said he would keep them for future reference and may call me some time, but he wasn’t promising anything.  I made it a point to visit regularly, but not so regularly as to piss the man off.  His brother Phil helps run the gallery and was very encouraging during these visits.

Finally, near the end of November – just two days after receiving a bamboo plant as a good luck gift from a friend, Craig decided (via Facebook) it was time to paint another man.  Apparently this happens about twice as often as US Presidential elections.

 

The opportunity was so important that I produced a documentary video of the session which took about 9 hours.  It was so many things – uncomfortable, flattering, educational, fun, but most of all it was absolutely beautiful.  The work is (as Craig’s always is) absolutely amazing and I am thrilled to be one of Craig Tracy’s immortal models!

One final note on Craig: the man has excellent taste in music!

Note: all photos above (with the exception of the three with Craig Tracy in the photos) were taken by Craig.  The final three were shot by my assistant, Samuel J. Queen of Tiny Muha.

The aftermath

For such a beautiful piece of art, the results to the home and human body are somewhat devastating.  The shower curtain serves as the final resting place for the remaining paint.  The black paint around my eyes proved too difficult to remove in my exhausted state, so the photo below is what I looked like in the morning.

 

What’s next?  Hopefully I will get to do at least one other bodypainting session with Angela Rene Roberts before heading out on the Capture the World Tour and the next big thing is modeling at the World Bodypainting Festival in Austria in July of 2016.  It has been a great journey!
