What is Paintloon?

 

Paintloon is a creative idea of fine artist and body painter Bella Volen.

Paintloon is painting on a balloon. It can be a combination of fine art, body painting, fashion and balloon sculpting. With latex modeling balloons details, objects, accessories complete costumes are made, which creates an extension for the body paint or fine artist to paint on, allowing the ability to merge the body or composition fully with any additional parts into one design.

Thi Paintloon is combined with LED light in the balloon costume, but it could be also painted with UV active paint and glow under UV light.

In 2009, I was invited to an event in Shanghai, China for body painting and balloon art, but as separate art forms. I thought I should combine them in one, so I spoke with the organizer, Guido Verhoef from The Netherlands, and soon after we created a few works together. I made the design, he shaped the balloons, then I painted them and took the photos. Unfortunately, as we lived in different countries, our continued work together became difficult. In 2011, however, I began my own experimenting with balloons, continuing this project alone.
