Welcome to the fresh new look Paintopia website!
For those of you visiting for the first time we thought we should use this first blog post to introduce ourselves to you and tell you a little about what we do here at Paintopia.
Paintopia originated as a face & bodyart festival dreamt up by bodyartist owner & managing director Jennie Roberts
. The festival ran from 2012 - 2016 and was a huge success attracting makeup & bodyartists from all over the world to come and compete in the competitions or just participate in general. At the present time the festival is having a break while Jennie concentrates on growing the retail and education side of the business but she does plan to bring it back at some point in the near future so keep your eyes on the Paintopia Facebook & Instagram feeds for announcement details!
& Angela Youngs
are both multiple award winning bodyartists and are the resident artists here at Paintopia. You will often see them demonstrating products we stock and creating bodypaints on the Paintopia stand at events throughout the year. They also go into Colleges, Makeup Schools and Academies on behalf of Paintopia to run specialist facepaint or bodypaint workshops (to enquire about our workshops or product kits please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org)
All three of us are judges for the Warpaintopia (collaboration between Paintopia & Warpaint Magazine) competitions at the Professional Beauty Shows
in London and Manchester. Jennie is an international judge who often travels abroad at the invitation of other bodyart competitions, most recently attending the Daegu Bodypainting Festival in South Korea in 2017.
Between the three of us we have a huge expanse of knowledge and experience in the bodyart industry which is reflected in the products stocked in the Paintopia online store and also will be shared with you via our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube) and our blog posts on here. We plan to feature some blog posts from guest experts in the industry on here too.
For now though that's enough waffling about us, take a look around the site and if you already have some products that we stock be sure to tag us in your social media posts as we love to see your creations and chat to you over there.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, we hope you like our new site and look forward to lots of creativity to come!
