New York's Halloween Parade Features Topless Models Bodypainted by Artist Andy Golub NEW YORK, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Andy Golub, the artist famous for painting beautiful women on the streets of New York City, will be featured in the 36th Annual New York Halloween Parade, held in Greenwich Village this Saturday, October 31, 2009. Golub's bodypainted models will ride through the parade in the artist's painted vehicles, a 1963 Chevy Low-rider truck painted in Golub's signature "Blue Faces" style and a 2007 Toyota Matrix covered with surreal characters. "Andy's beautiful bodypaintings add a great energy to the Halloween Parade," said Jeanne Fleming, Artistic and Producing Director of New York's Village Halloween Parade. "We look forward to Andy's creations for the third straight year." Using his graffiti-style lines, Golub turns his models into living, breathing works of art. "Each bodypainting is one-of-a-kind," said Golub. "When I paint, I feed off the energy of the model to create a unique piece of art." About Andy Golub Andy Golub, New York's own bodypainter, has painted hundreds of models -- thin and full-figured, female and male, solo and in large groups, in private studios and live in public. Since 2006, Golub has performed live bodypainting throughout New York City's public spaces including Columbus Circle, the New York Public Library, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Meatpacking District, but he considers Times Square his home base. "I started bodypainting in Times Square this summer after it became a pedestrian mall," said Golub. After being kicked out of Times Square by the NYPD, Golub contacted civil rights attorney Ron Kuby to confirm his rights. Kuby clarified the law to Golub, and in a letter to the city explained, "the right of women to bare their breasts in public is protected by the New York State Constitution, People v. Santorelli (1992)." Since then Golub has returned to Times Square regularly. "I'm confident that what I'm doing is perfectly legal," said Golub. "I'm not going to stop just because somebody doesn't like what I'm doing." In addition to painting the human form, Golub has been commissioned to paint vehicles, murals, musical instruments, skateboards, shoes and many other objects.
