Interview: Mr. Pink

Can you tell us the story about how Mr. Pink came to life?

So Mr Pink was born at Burning Man. In 1994 I went to Burning Man for the first time. I was blown away by the art but mostly by people embracing creative expression. It was there i saw some people naked in body paint. They weren’t actually performing, rather they were in costume. I vowed that the next year I would do the same. I convinced all of my friends beforehand to join in.
