At Painting with a Twist, we have over 350 franchised studios nationwide. Each studio has about 5-6 artists working at each location. These are creatively talented in various ways. Some are painters. Some work with textiles. Some even focus on creating sculptures. Then, we have artists who have talents that are slightly less traditional… bringing us to body artist, Ms. Brittney Pelloquin.
See, Brittney has many talents – photography, sculpture, print-making – but her passion is in body painting. Brittney creates whole worlds on the skin of her subjects. Her art will dazzle and inspire you.
Brittney managed the Painting with a Twist studio in Lafayette, LA for three years before moving to Houston. There she explored the art form of body painting and never looked back. She even became a contestant on the show, Skin Wars!
Her talent is undeniable. Back in April, the art studio put on a show where a dancer morphed out of a 12-foot mural – and Brittney was tasked with creating the camouflage.
Can you find the dancer?
Brittney Pelloquin Artist Bio
Brittney Pelloquin is an accomplished world body painter and fine artist. She is a tv contestant on Skin Wars Season 3, is ranked as the No. 8 body painter in the nation at the 2014 Living Art America in Atlanta, and placed 10th in the World Professional Brush and Sponge Category at the 2016 World Bodypainting Festival in Austria.
Born and raised in Louisiana, Brittney lives and works as a visual artist who paints on any surface that comes her way. She earned her degree in Visual Arts from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and now takes art to the next level by painting live art on the human body, known as “body painting”. For Brittney, living art is the most exciting and fulfilling work because it allows her to give a new meaning to the artistic beauty of the nude human figure in all its natural shapes and sizes.
Brittney’s passion for the arts began in her youth. Her strong family support fueled her interest for her to pursue this passion in life. She began to notice the great impact she made on others lives through her work. Bringing a sense of joy and excitement to others is ultimately what created her road for where she is today. She found herself pondering the question, “What is life without feeling any happiness or love, and what am I doing to achieve this?” Brittney focuses her attention on pouring her love into each piece that she creates and like most individuals, she struggled at times trying to find herself as an artist. She knew working directly with people is what gave her the most satisfying reward. It wasn’t until she began the journey in body painting that she truly understood her purpose in life.
