Robin Slonina is an international artist whose creations range from paintings, mural, sculptures and body art. She believes in bringing art to the people and incorporates people into many of her interactive art projects.
At Bodypainting Day in New York City, the public was invited to watch as Robin transformed beautiful model Bethani Gruber into a statuesque winged sculpture.
When deciding on the design for her bodypaint Slonina states, "I am the type of bodypainter that really likes to plan ahead. I research images, do a sketch and custom cut stencils in preparation for my body art. But my normal working method doesn't really suit Bodypainting Day, where part of the fun is being spontaneous and organic and reacting to the energy of your model.
I had a vision of wings, so I did a basic sketch the day before. But it's hard to sketch when you aren't sure if you will be painting a man or woman, because this year the models were randomly assigned to us that day. I think it was destiny that I was given Bethani to paint because she is such an angel that my wing design perfectly suited her. I improvised the design on her face and legs, and the shimmer of light coming out of her chest was definitely inspired by my model's unique energy."
Robin is also a producer and judge on the television show Skin Wars that features a competition among body painters to find the best body painter.
