Live Art – Body Canvas Showcase – Melbourne

Body Canvas this year is going to be amazing – this annual fundraiser for the National Breast Cancer Foundation just gets bigger and better every year, with a wealth of amazing artists and models getting together to raise funds for the organisation.

In the lead up to the show, Body Canvas has a number of cool events scheduled to help raise awareness of the event, and this weekend they will be putting on a mad live art/graff/body painting event in Brunswick.

"On the 14 August 2011 a large wall outside the Brunswick train station just outside of the Noise Bar will be painted with a huge ‘Body Canvas’ tag and will have models airbrushed and embedded into the wall. All the media will be invited down as well as film crews and photographers. This will be a fantastic afternoon for models, artists, celebrities and the media to get together and prepare for the big event on the 24th September."

Walls, paint, girls and an amazing fundraiser – with the guys from SafeHouse doing a fair share of the artwork for the day, its lookin like a grand Sunday afternoon to us.
