Show Information

Due to unexpected illness we have not been able to raise the funds required to put the grand NZ Body Art Showcase as it has been presented in the past. However with international and national artists still wanting to get together and experiencing a fun day of painting we have revised a smaller show.

The revised show will be a smaller version of the planned ‘Once Upon A Time‘ NZ Body Art Showcase and will be held on Saturday 26th August at the Spencer on Byron in The Ballroom*.

The Spencer on Byron is located on Aucklands North Shore (the home of NZ Body Art) just meters from Takapuna beach, 2 minutes from the motorway and 10 minutes from the Auckland CBD; this idyllic location will keep the event at the level artists are accustomed to and suitable for this quality of art display.

* Please note this revised show is in development and is funding dependent.
if you would like to sponsor this event, please contact for further information.

OPEN FORUM (11am – 3pm)
For this special event we will be opening the doors to allow media & public to see behind the scenes and witness the hard work & skill that goes into creating these moving canvas’.

Admission by ticket only. Price to be announced.

COCKTAIL EVENING (5.30pm – 10pm)
Be there for our show and join us for an evening celebrating body art, special effects makeup and the art of illusion.

SHOW CONCEPT: A storyteller tells the tale of a young girl who wants to be the world’s best dancer – with help from the imagination of our amazing artists we see the young dancers dreams and journey through them with her.

The show & awards will be followed by the opportunity to mix & mingle with artists and models.


Tickets to the NZ Body Art Presentation are available on TicketMaster now.
