Passionate, dedicated and multi-talented are just three words to describe Hyewon.

These are the stunning naked bodies of talented women and men who´ll, enchanted by the magic body painting of Wolf Reicherter, take you on a journey into, or give you a glimpse of magical worlds above and beneath the human plain. Whimsical creatures and beautiful spirits made visible through the modern sorcery body painting, Ultra Violet lights and colors.
Since the beginning of man in dark pre-times, humans were determined to grow past their own potential and gain access to the worlds of spirits, ghosts and gods. Adorned with the hides, horns and fur of killed animals, painted with the colors mother earth provided, the shaman and medicine man became the guide of his people between these different worlds. Body painting was invented.
A special form of body painting
In 1998 Wolf Reicherter became directly involved with body painting art for the first time. Soon after this, his first living work of art was created. In the same year he got intrigued with UV-color sand body painting from this combination of passions Body Magic was born. During the last seven years Wolf Reicherter continued to explore and develop the medium and his style, creating painting after painting. Elaborate works of art, destined to only last a few hours.
More artists will be added as confirmed!
