    This Artist Is Turning “Flaws” Into Colorful Art To Promote Self-Love

    "Loving yourself is a revolutionary act."

    Barcelona-based artist Cinta Tort Cartró is turning what society has deemed "ugly" into art.

    She told BuzzFeed that she's painting over people's stretch marks to promote self-love and acceptance.

    Cinta, whose artistic name is Zinteta, said she spent years hating the way she looked.

    With time, she learned to accept who she is and what she looks like, allowing her to practice self-love.

    In addition to stretch marks, she's also given period stains a colorful touch. This is part of an initiative called #manchoynomedoyasco, which translates to "I stain and I'm not disgusted by myself."

    She uses a colorful palette to normalize her process and make her art accesible.

    Zinteta just wants people who aren't comfortable in their own skin to love themselves without letting anyone or anything interfere.
