Lion Dance

Lion Dance body painting by Danny Setiawan of DenArt body art studio in NYCWhen we did this painting, the model who is a dancer, was about to start a new dance program in a new city.

The lion dance design works well to describe her story because lion dance is part of Chinese new year celebration. It marks the end of a period and welcomes a new one with boldness.

In addition to the lion dance image, a silhouette of a female dancer was added to tie back the design to the model. We also added a quote “I’ll chase the sky forever” on her left chest where her heart is because this is the quote that inspires her to pursue her passion.

Model: Rissi Z
