2013 Australian Body Art Carnivale

Organisers of the Australian Body Art Carnivale have announced the highly anticipated theme for 2013, and it is ... “The Best of Oz”!

Event Manager Danielle Taylor says the theme lends itself to a wide range of interpretations for artists.

“Think Aussie icons like the Opera House or Harbour Bridge, The Great Barrier Reef, Uluru, or Kakadu.”

“Artists may be inspired to create works that relate to Dame Edna, Kylie Minogue, Metre Maids, Bondi Lifesavers, and sports stars from Black Caviar to tennis and cricketing legends,” Danielle says.

“Or iconic Aussie brands and inventions – from the pavlova to vegemite, or even the hills hoist.  Plus there is a host of Aussie movies to draw inspiration from Mad Max to Priscilla Queen of the Desert,” she says.

Danielle says the theme certainly doesn’t rule out interpretation of The Wizard of Oz either.  “We’d welcome good and wicked witches, scarecrows, tin men, munchkins and more!”
