Spanish Dancer after Sargent body painting by Danny SetiawanThis is a tribute to John Singer Sargent.

I saw some of his work when I went to the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. and that visit left me a really strong impression. Sargent was a portraiture genius.

During the shoot, we just played a music and let the model dance freely. We got really nice natural poses that make the painting works really well with the model. This is one of them.

This piece was also featured in the body painting issue of Make Up Artist magazine (Jan/Feb 2010).
