We know you have all been waiting to buy tickets, so we are very excited to let you know that tickets are now available from TicketMaster NZ. Tickets are limited so get in quick to avoid missing out.


To help avoid confusion have renamed this year’s event to the NZ Body Art Presentation.

Body Art On Display

From Tuesday 15th August 2017 a photographic exhibition of images from previous NZ Body Art Showcases will be on display and for sale at The Bruce Mason Centre.

We encourage everyone to visit and talk a walk down memory lane with us. All photos will be for sale cash & carry at below cost (framed & unframed), so get in early.

The Promenade, Takapuna

Your Support Is Needed

The NZ Body Art Showcase has been running a fundraising campaign on Boosted and we really need you to help us reach our target of $5000.

We started this campaign to help with venue cost and looking after everybody involved on the day; that hasn’t changed. The money raised from Boosted will be going directly into a smaller event at The Spencer on Byron in Takapuna.
This event will give artists a place to showcase and photograph the works they have created for the 2017 NZ Body Art Showcase and still have it seen by our fantastic panel of judges including Richard Taylor and Gino Acevedo of Weta Workshop.

We hope that with help from you and your network we will be able to reach our goal and bring you a small but great event for 2017.

NZ Body Art Showcase Announcement

Unfortunately due to illness and circumstances beyond our control we have been unable to raise the funds for the 2017 NZ Body Art Showcase.

We are currently working to put together a smaller revised show (same theme) for artists still wanting to get together and experience a fun day of painting.

We will be sending out more information about the smaller revised showcase as it becomes available. However if you have any questions or if you would like more information, please email or phone 027bodyart.

Thank you for your continued support & patients.
