Face Painting in Hong Kong - Meet the Amazing Face Painter Kiki Iwata - Plus Face Painting with DIPS
.This is Anna, here at Jest Paint. I have been following international face painters for over 20 years online and have had the opportunity to meet many in person at conventions in the US and South America. There is so much to learn from face painters from around the world so I started writing some blog posts last year featuring artists! Now we can all hear their face painting stories and know the artists behind the amazing works that we see on social media.
This month you will meet Kiki Iwata. She has been amazing me for the past few years with her beautiful bold tropical designs, sparkly bling and funky hair additions that make her work stand out! I noticed that she was using water resistant paints for pool parties and thought that she would be the perfect artist to interview to learn about what face painting is like in Hong Kong and learn more about her experience using Proaiir DIPS! Make sure to follow Kiki on Instagram Here and Facebook!
Getting to Know Kiki Iwata
How long have you been face painting, and how did you find out about this art form?
I've been working as a professional face painter for 3 years. I began my journey through a wonderful face painting group called FaMiMow; #mifacepainting (instagram) - who formed volunteer communities amongst likeminded and motivated parents in Hong Kong.
The group expanded rapidly and is now over 200 volunteers strong; and serves local schools, hospitals and social projects where the children and needy either have seldom had the chance to or indeed never experienced the joys of face painting.
As the high quality materials can sometimes be a tad expensive, I started to take bookings so that I can continue to provide help and assistance to the volunteer group.
