From “The Superhuman Body Handbook” Created for Channel for for the Rio Olympics.
“I’ve never felt so sexy, powerful, unique!” – Deb Roach
Due to popular demand, Victoria has released the trailers for this spectacular Superhuman Body Handbook paint here, which was the world’s first 3D UV Paint on a disabled champion poledancer.
You can see more of this episode as part of the groundbreaking Rio Paralympics special over on the All4 website, as part of their series on unique and powerful bodies that defy disability stereotypes.
Deb Roach is a world champion pole dancer and member of Extraordinary Bodies, with a difference; she was born without most of her left arm, but that doesn’t hold her back. Through careful guidance and attention to detail, Victoria paints a 3D UV bodypaint piece on her as a way to empower her spirit, give her immense confidence, and also, to create something uniquely beautiful, while taking her out of her comfort zone. Through each brushstroke, more about Deb’s dynamic nature is revealed, the bodypaint being specifically tailored to Roach’s needs- her love of triangles, dynamic, strong shapes and strokes that embody movement are all included to make this beautiful piece a one of a kind experience.
After the 3D makeup was applied, Deb really started coming to life, revealing a true force of nature.
Artworks like this are some of Victoria’s favourites and are the most rewarding. After creating the piece, Deb Roach was seen running about the academy shouting “I don’t want to take (the paint) off!”
