Johannes Stötter is artist, musician and fine art bodypainter. Born and based in South Tyrol (Italy), he spent his early childhood in the high Alps and grew up with 3 brothers and a sister in a family of musicians. He sings, plays violin, whistle and bouzouki in the Celtic Folk band “Burning Mind“, he studied education and philosophy at the University of Innsbruck, Austria, and was involved in several social projects which he combined with art and music.
 
As a fully autodidactic artist Johannes developed his painting style and his bodypainting technique without any relation to other bodypainting artists and their work. He joined the international bodypainting community in 2009 at the World Bodypainting Festival in Austria, where he took part at the bodypainting world championship for the first time.
 
In the following years he won many awards, most notably he was WORLD CHAMPION 2012, Vice World Champion 2011 and 2014, Italian Champion 2011 and 2013, winner of the North American Bodypainting Championship, Atlanta, Georgia, USA 2013 and Winner of the “International Fine Art Bodypainting Award” 2014.
 
In 2013 he became world famous with his legendary creation of a tropical frog consisting of 5 human bodies, so he made headlines in the world press and was featured in newspapers, magazines and online magazines as New York Post, New York Daily News, The Sun, The Times, The Mirror, The Guardian, Dailymail, Bild, Stern, Spiegel, Focus, Süddeutsche Zeitung, View and many more, in TV channels as CNN, BBC, TV Globo, RAI, ZDF, Pro7, RTL, DW, ORF, ntv Japan and many more, as well as in the published books “The Art of Bodypainting” (Peter de Ruiter), “Champions at Heart” (Karala B), “The Human Canvas” (Karala B) and in the Calendar “Painted Bodies” (Weingarten Verlag).
 
Today Johannes teaches Bodypainting at the World Bodypainting Academy – at the WBF (World Bodypainting Festival) as well as around the world – and Anatomic Bodypainting at Yoni Academy. He works and exhibits all around the globe in collaboration with his agency wb-production. You can read more about Johannes at his website: www.johannesstoetterart.com

Dewayne Flowers was born and raised in Georgia and has recently relocated to San Diego. He has always been an artist working in the mediums of drawing, painting, ceramics. He became interested in bodypainting when he was 17 and did his first painting in his junior year of high school. He took a very poor photo of that piece which then became the catalyst for him to learn photography. Referred to as a photographer, he sees himself as more of an artist who knows how to photograph his own work. You can learn more about Dewayne at his website www.fleshandcolor.com. See his video with Lana Chromium below.

Deborah Brommer has a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Art History and a minor in theatre from Ohio University. Her love of art and her love of performance came together in an obsession with body painting. Deborah started her body art journey with Henna which she discovered on a trip to Morocco in 2000 and shortly thereafter started her body art business. Her foray into body painting began in 2008 when she decided to paint her very first body at the World Bodypainting Competition in Austria in the amateur division. She fell in love with the art form and hasn’t looked back, competing several more times at the WBF and other venues around the world.
