An art show with a difference was hailed a ‘fantastic success’ when the human form turned canvas to become unique works of art.
The Devon Body Art Exhibition, organised by Shelley LaFleur, was a first for Exmouth; the two-day event, at the Royal Beacon Hotel, showcased the work of body artists from across the globe.
Exmouth Community College student Milena Watts, 17, with her boyfriend Daniel Evans as her model, scooped the final catwalk display of work, judged by award-winning Belgium artist Sabine Vogel.
Shelley Le Fleur said: “Milena has a natural talent for someone so young, and will be sure to go far in the body art world.”
The theme for the event was regeneration as a nod to the current development plans for Exmouth seafront. Body artists were invited to create ‘fabulous designs’ on the human form.

The organiser said the public was keen to chat to the artists and their models.
“Locals were responsive and interested in the process, and it was a fantastic success,” said Shelley.
