Judge Rupaul

RuPaul serves as one of the three judges on GSN’s hit series, SKIN WARS, an hour-long skill-based competition show that seeks to find the most talented and versatile body painters in the country.

Best known for his work as the drag queen who achieved international fame after appearances in a wide variety of television programs, films, and musical albums throughout the 1990s, he is now the executive producer and host of the global phenomenon “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” and currently co-host of the TV series “Good Work,” which covers the world of plastic surgery in Hollywood.

RuPaul first skyrocketed to international fame with the CD release of “Supermodel of the World,” in 1993 which was followed by roles in several feature films and TV sitcoms, and eventually becoming host of “The RuPaul Show” on VH1

Off-screen, RuPaul has been a spokesperson for M.A.C Cosmetics and known as “the first face” of the company. He also has his own cosmetic and fragrance line, Glamazon.

The author of the autobiography Lettin’ It All Hang Out and Workin’ It: RuPaul’s Guide to Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Style, RuPaul has also recorded 11 solo albums, including his latest release, “Realness.”

Born & raised in San Diego, RuPaul moved to Atlanta at age 15 and later studied theatre at North Atlanta School of Performing Arts. He now splits his time between homes in New York and Los Angeles.

Judge Craig Tracy

Born and Raised in New Orleans La, USA, Craig Tracy has always been an Artist. Craig credits New Orleans with it’s authentic and vibrant culture as a significant factor in what is at the heart of his passion, creativity and bliss. His family’s photo album is filled with images that captured moments where he and his family would ritually paint each others faces for Mardi Gras, Mardi Gras is perhaps the largest costumed celebration or carnival in the world where individuality and self adornment are considered standard practice. “There was never any question regarding my being or becoming a professional artist. It was always just obvious and understood.” As a child Craig’s loving parents nurtured his creative development as well they gave him the gift of freedom to mature as an absolute individual.  His parents were living in a special time and in a special place filled with radical changes. Categorized best as working class hippies, their nonconformist principles were instilled firmly in the young artist. It’s safe to say that “Flower Power” and “Power To The People” are vastly responsible for his unique perspective on art and life. Coincidentally, it was that same hippie movement that re-ignited the soon to be interest and practice of Bodypainting in the western world.

Craig’s early years were filled with drawings and paintings of idealized love and beauty. He continued to expand his artistic horizons well into his teen years and at fifteen he received his first airbrush as a gift from his parents. The airbrush would become the technique that would dominate his next twenty years painting. One year later at sixteen and in his third year in high school, Craig was working nights and weekends as an airbrush artist in a local shopping mall. There he painting primarily custom t-shirts and other personal gift type items. It was an important time for the young artist as he quickly learned how to paint almost any image on a vast multitude of surfaces. “Anything on anything was what those days were like. I’d often paint fifty to eighty hours a week and in doing so I learned some very important and useful skills” states the artist.

Considered a cornerstone in Bodypaintings progressive movement, today Craig Tracy Bodypaints exclusively as well he owns and operates the very first art gallery in the world dedicated to fine art Bodypainted images. The gallery allows even the most seasoned art collectors and novices alike to see and experience first hand what Bodypainting is ultimately capable of expressing. With a passionate and pioneering spirit Craig personally meets and educates hundreds of people each week in the gallery. The Craig Tracy Gallery is filled with spectacular photographic, paper and canvas prints as well there are numerous videos of the process and books that focus on this art form. Please feel free to visit the gallery if you are ever in or near New Orleans. You will not regret the experience.
