Anna Chapovalov

I am self-taught body artist, born in Ukraine and raised in Italy, but now residing in Texas.  Despite never having considered the possibility of a career as a professional artist, I felt in love with the idea after seeing a body painting competition for the first time in 2015. I began my studies the same year in Italy through YouTube videos, books, and local workshops.  After several months, I took the leap into the world of competitive body painting, and haven’t looked back.

Constantly study new drawing techniques, attend workshops, and practice to improve my skills.  I love to compete and to challenge myself with different themes , jobs and projects.
