Kelly “Red” Belmonte

Kelly’s love of make-up began as a child. In high school she worked on plays, musicals and even haunted houses (where she began to learn prosthetics and all the “fun” make-up) just to satisfy her cravings for the fantasty life. Kelly graduated from high school and moved to Las Vegas in 1988 to pursue her dream. In 1996, she began working professionally as a body painter. Kelly excels at beauty, high fashion, airbrushing…and being a full-time mom with two kids. She feels she is on of those rare, lucky people that had a dream as a kid and is living that dream today. Now with Naked Vegas, she is taking that dream with her full bravado and tenacity to the next level by starting an official body painting business in Vegas.

Nix Herrera

With his guy-liner and dyed hair, Season 2 Face Off contestant Nix is the Lady Gaga of body painting. Usig mixed-media styles like Shepherd Fairy or Banksy, Nix’s perfectionism led him to body paint for numerous celebrity parties, as well as major events at the Playboy Mansion. His work has appeared in Rolling Stone, Payboy, Fangoria, Makeup Mag, and Wizard Comics. Nix tends to procrastinate but loves the drive of competition and flirting with the girls.

Heather Aguilera

If Heather hadn’t found body painting, she’d be one of those artists on the boardwalk in Venice Beach talking to you about energy and crystals. She’s expressive, passionate, and only works with vibrant color, texture and movement. Since Heather has also been a model for some of the best painters in the world, she connects with the models’ experience and knows the importance of the energy they contribute to the final piece. Heather’s speciality is in prenatal art (belly painting!) and crafty head pieces. You will always get a warm smile and a big hug from Heather upon meeting her.

Wiser Owner

Wiser is the graffiti street boy who turned his alley tagging into a business when he realized you could paint on naked girls. He’s got a heart of gold and is a big softie underneath what many may perceive as a gruff exterior. Wiser has completed numerous creative works including phenomenal in-studio conceptual pieces, countless live freestyle pieces (done as entertainment), and award-winnning competitive works. He has done projects for clients such as Absolut, Bacardi, Tuaca, Ed Hardy, and many others. When it comes to graffiti or optical illusion style painting, clients turn to Wiser.

Drew Marvick

Drew Marvick is originally from California but has lived in Las Vegas for the past 13 years. Since living in Las Vegas, Drew has managed retail stores, restaurants and bars, including the famous Coyote Ugly. He met Red about 6 years ago and they instantly hit it off. They have worked on many projects together over the years. Drew is a lover of art and would love to learn how to body paint but he knows his strengths lie on the business end of things. He studied business management at UNLV where he also met his wife. The father of two is also a scifi fanatic and even has what he calls a “nerd cave” in his home. Drew describes himself as handy, well connected and definitely knows how to get things done.
