Gabi Hajek-Renner (internationally distinguished artist, WBA member and multiple world champion in bodypainting as well as owner of Austria’s Makeup School) has been working together with light artist and underwater photographer Martin Aigner and a dedicated team under the name “Reefvillage – Creating New Life!” for the creation of new habitats for the preservation of the underwater world. A number of unique projects have already been launched to raise money for the construction of coral reefs in regions where natural reefs have been destroyed.
Jean-Paul Bourdier is a photographer of unique style, skill, passion and great imagination. His images use multiple crafts – among them painting, poetry, and performance art. He uses no digital enhancement; it is all analog photography.
What you see is what was really there.
Jean-Paul´s work is unique and both simple and yet complex. Each image is a scene – created, staged, captured - of natural landscapes joined with the human form, expressing beauty, truth and wonder in the physical plane, as well as what is in our imaginations.

It’s now been the 24th World Bodypainting Festival we have been organizing and once again it was a very different experience. The pandemic lasts another season so we decided to organize beside the World Championships and Special Awards online, many more activities on site in the host city Klagenfurt.
We have seen a lot of programs within the festival week from 18 – 24 July and everything went very well.
