Jennie Roberts travelled to Daegu to join a panel of world champion bodyartists at the end of August.

The founder of Norwich's Paintopia body art festival, Mrs Roberts has over 12 years of industry experience under her belt and recently organised showstopping sets for Norwich Fashion Week 2017.

Held over two days, the Daegu International Bodypainting festival featured Korean, Japanese and Argentinian artists as well as a handful of European entries.

Mrs Roberts said: 'I was sad to see no British artists attended, but this is something I am hoping to change next year now that I've experienced the wonderful event.

'The weekend showcased not only fantastic bodyart but also performances by world famous K Pop stars, a music genre which is little heard of over here but is absolutely huge there.'
