Body art

explores the use of the human body as a vehicle for expression with the possibility to convey social criticism , as Jessy notes, Mega Body Paint México “presents body art both as a vehicle for artistic expression and for social criticism.”

In 2014, Mega Body Paint México organized a protest against the statements issued by José María Martínez, Head of the Family Commission at the time, who declared that the only acceptable family structure should be integrated by the figure of a mother, a father and their offspring, thus neglecting families structured otherwise.

That same year, Mega Body Paint México started Mega Procesión de las Catrinas , an event that revolves around The Calavera Catrina, Mexico's Grande Dame of Death , a creation by Mexican artist José Guadalupe Posada in 1912, aiming to preserve Mexican traditions.
