Bodypainting is not easy. The models have to stand motionless for hours while enduring ticklish feelings from the tip of a paintbrush filled with paint enamel that is gently sliding on all parts of their body. Then the feeling you are being mummified as the paint dries and starts cracking on the skin.

Being part of Hari ng Negros, this is what the candidates had to endure. To have their bodies used as canvass. To continue forgotten traditions that was once part of Negrense culture and for the artists to renew their need for self expression.

Forever, Hari ng Negros.
