Jan Tana’s Body Painting Revolution, a colorful and artistic event, will be emerging on the 2018 Arnold Classic Africa in Johannesburg on May 18-20th at the Sandton Convention Center.  The international competition, with $3000 in prizes, takes place Saturday May 19th.

This unique art exhibition and competition will be displayed live, throughout the day at the expo on Level 0 booth #1158. Exhibition paintings will be featured on Friday, May 18th and Sunday, May 20. 

Saturday the Artists will transform models into a living piece of art, during a magical process taking six hours. The live canvases will then take the expo stage at 5:00pm to delight the audiences as they present their bodies as art with breathtaking stage performances.

Artists will draw creative inspiration from the symbolic theme, “Reflections of Africa” as many artists will have the opportunity to work with IFBB athletes.


Bodypainting artists from Israel, the Netherlands, Sweden, UK, Italy, USA and hometown favorite artist from South Africa will compete. These professional artists include international title-holders, North American champions and artists featured on the reality TV show, Skin Wars.

The expert panel of judges will include five times world body painting champion, Scott Fray. Five times world champion, Madelyn Greco, will be co-hosting the event along with presenting sponsor and international tanning specialist, Jan Tana.

This exciting event is a must see and will thrill audiences of all ages. Attendees can learn more about these incredible artists and their craft, all weekend and cheer on their favorites, to victory!
