The London Naked Painting Party


Written by Don't Panic
25 Friday 25th April 2014

Well, since you asked, the NAKED PAINTING PARTY is a concept party originally devised by the New York based events company, Social Exposure. The Naked Painting Party draws hundreds of attendees to collectively BODY PAINT each other in the nude.  The folks at Social Exposure has brought the one of a kind art party across the pond for Sunday May 25th at the brand new TRAPEZE BAR with a circus Berserk theme for daring Londoners to bare it all and network outside the box! 

London marks the fourth city on the 2014 world tour. Past cities include New York, Mexico and Miami with plans to take on Berlin and Croatia. The LONDON edition will feature electric, bizarre colours and décor, circus performers, complimentary cocktails, danceable, deep, vocal house music and over 300 NAKED REVELERS!  “When I first heard about this concept coming to London, I just HAD to make it happen at Trapeze Bar”! Sarah Holgate, director of Events and Promotions at Trapeze says, “Shoreditch is quickly becoming the best area for new, exciting and refreshing nightlife and The Naked Painting Party is certainly all encompassing”. 

Social Exposure conceptualised The Naked Painting Party in New York City as a way to CELEBRATE inner beauty, positive body image and unity through the arts. Nightlife events are often stale, snobby and lack real connection. Social Exposure as an events company is all about creating rebellious event content that challenge the way we network. The energy at the painting parties can be best described as The Full Moon Parties in Thailand meets Art Basel.  

So how does it work? Bring clothes you don’t care about, get as nude as you are comfortable with, pick up a brush, find a stranger, and let the mess begin! “This is one of the ONLY events in the world that is so hugely interactive and collaborative. People don’t sit around and watch someone paint; the point is to paint each other. Brushes are going every where and you should expect to leave completely covered in colours,” explains founder of Social Exposure, Sally Golan.
