Midsumma Festival, Carnival Craziness
LIVE ART SHOW: ICONIC ADAM CULLEN PAINTINGS RECREATED ON NUDE MODELS AT MIDSUMMA CARNIVAL
Renowned Australian body-paint artist Wendy Fantastia recreated the iconic Minotaur and Growler artworks on two nude models at The Cullen’s stall at Midsumma Carnival.
The real-time art display started at 11am and took Fantasia about seven hours to complete.
Midsumma Festival is Victoria's premier LGBTQIA+ cultural festival, made for and by communities who live with shared experiences around diverse gender and sexuality. The three-week festival kicked off with an all-day carnival at Alexandra Gardens.
This was the fourth time The Cullen has held a stall at the carnival with the festival perfectly aligned with the hotel’s mantra of The Art of Living Fearlessly.
In addition to the live body painting, the stall featured a Glam-Bar to ensure everyone was looking fine and fabulous throughout the carnival and a chill out zone with social media photo booth.
The Cullen is also collaborating with the Burnet Institute to raise awareness on men’s health issues. Known for its ground-breaking HIV research and public health projects, Burnet aims to achieve better health for vulnerable communities in Australia and internationally by accelerating the translation of research, discovery and evidence into sustainable health solutions.
