Michel El Ghoul, who came from Lebanon to do our 7-week course in Aylesbury in 2017, has won second place in the French Bodypainting Awards 2019, organised by the World Bodypainting Association. The theme was “Poetry – the power of words” and Michel’s work features the Lebanese-American writer and poet Khalil Gibran.
The event featured 20 international artists who worked for six and a half hours to create their art. We think his work is amazing – but then so was his work on the 7-week course! A man of great imagination and many talents, Michel is a painter, architect, SFX makeup artist, actor, and musician, and Neill remembers his beautiful singing voice. He created this fantastic Dragon Lord for his final piece in his 7-week course…you can also enjoy his video showing the process.
Wonderful success, then and now – congratulations Michel!
