Christine Binnie Body Painted and Photographed by Wilma Johnson at St Martins School of Art London 1980

The group established quite organically, whilst Christine Binnie and Wilma Johnson had been experimenting at St Martin’s College with body painting as a way to expand past the canvas, Jennifer Binnie and Grayson Perry had also been using body paint as a way of exploring body image and identity at Portsmouth Polytechnic. United by a belief in the radical and subversive potential of bodypainting, the Neo Naturists took these private experiments to clubs and parties, which quickly developed into more formalized parts of the groups artistic practice.
