2017 Featured Teller: Christopher Agostino

Christopher Agostino has enjoyed a 30 year adventure in theater, storytelling, facepainting and bodypainting as chronicled in his book Transformations! The Story Behind the Painted Faces, published by Kryolan Professional Makeup. He and his work have appeared on the CBS Early Show, NBC Today Show and the cover of the Abercrombie & Fitch Quarterly. Before Cave Walls…the story on our skin is his unique educational presentation on the history and cultural significance of masks and bodyart. His StoryFaces storytelling shows combining theater with painted faces have been presented at the Face & Body Art International Convention, The World Bodypainting Festival and for hundreds of audiences in schools, festivals and theaters. Christopher is the Artistic Director of Transformations Facepainting, a company which has earned the preeminent position at public events in New York City, transforming thousands of people annually for the Bronx Zoo, NYC Parks Department, the NYC Housing Authority, and special events like the World Science Festival.

What the Festival contributes:

Providing meaningful compensation to tellers…

The Festival continues to assert the position of storytelling as a valid art form by providing meaningful compensation to storytellers, rather than asking them to volunteer their time or perform for less than their usual fee at the Festival. In addition to monetary compensation, these artists also receive promotion in pre- and post-event publicity (print, television and radio), a listing in the Festival program, and the opportunity to distribute brochures and business cards at a resource table at the Festival.
