Blanko | Human statue World Champion

Blanko is literally a blank canvas where the audience is invited to use the paint and brushes on hand to create a different piece of living art each time.

Blanko starts off completely white from head to toe and by the end is a mass of colour. This original concept has starred in corporate and street performance festivals around the world, from Toronto to Europe and across Asia. A wonderful icebreaker at weddings, parties and corporate events, Blanko brings people together in a completely unique way. This is the creation of JOHNman, a two time Human Statue World Champion.

“On 29th of September 2013 the World Championship of Living Statues took place again in Arnheim, Netherlands. More than 200 artists took part in this competition, which is the biggest of that kind in the world with around 300 000 visitors. “BLANKO” performed by JOHNman was outstanding in the great variety of performances. He inspired the audience and convinced the international jury. In the end he not only won the prize in the “concept” category but was also awarded the title “World Champion 2013″. He is the first ever double World champion, having won the title previously in 2010.”
