The Artist, Lucie Brouillard and the model or some of the models of the day!
Yesterday I managed to steal some time to pay another visit to Lucie Brouillard at work durig the Daidogei/Street Performance Festival in Shizuoka City. Lucie who hails from Alberta State and Quebec in Canada (we spoke in French all the time!) graduated in Art at High School and has been working in face painting and body painting for last 25 years. It is quite incredible to realize that she taught herself an art that she calls “writing a story on a body”!
Check Lucie Brouillard’s homepage for her art portfolio!
You will understand why she became the Bodypainting World Champion in 2009 and the Facepainting World Champion in 2009!
Interestingly enough Lucie pointed out that the Japanese people are the best to paint on their faces and bodies as they very few wrinkles and stay quiet and immobile while being decorated!
here is a compilation of her art I had the joy to witness!
A cute little peacock!
Beautifully combining the design color with that of the clothing!
The eye of a legendary bird?
A brace of mature felines!
A rejuvenated witch?
Another pixie just out of the woods!
That pixie came fleeting out the sky!
Now, who could be this macabre Bacchus?
Can you guess?
A half mask for the Carnival!
Another Lady Butterfly?
A growling lion from The Philippines!
A Pink Phoenix!
A bank employee?
Lucie confided this was the first time she had painted a squirrel on a face!
A howling dragon and a grinning frog!
Drawn on request!
Lucie didn’t want me to publish that particular design but I decided to show it to demonstrate that my friend will satisfy any design if reasonable!
And an 11-year old flower pixie for the last finishing touch!
See you again next year!
