16 Body Positive Artists You Need To Follow
Share if you're a little hairy, sometimes chubby, not "Fair & Lovely" – and happy as hell.
1. Jasjyot Singh Hans
"I refuse to be made to feel like I'm part of any preference or fetish. Body shaming, race shaming and behavioural shaming are not cool, for any person belonging to any sexuality. So why not just spread ❤️? It's easier."
2. Ayqa Khan
“It is important for me to normalise body hair because it is something that shouldn’t be a huge deal considering body hair is natural and the removal of it is a social construct.”
3. Kully Rehal
Rehal draws about breaking gender stereotypes, powerful women role models and just the general struggles of being desi.
4. Hana Shafi AKA Frizz Kid Art
Hana's drawings celebrate South Asian beauty and badassness. She even has daily positive affirmations to make you feel lovely.
8. Adrita Das
9. Khushboo Gulati
Gulati draws about being brown and proud and also queer, trans and non-binary desis.
11. Baljinder Kaur
Baljinder just completed her ‘Thank You’ project, "which began as an exploration of my relationship with everyday personal objects and life."
12. Debangshu Moulik
Moulik takes inspiration from every thing and every one around him and the resulting sketches are amazing.
13. Babbu The Painter
Babbu can make anything desi – The Simpsons, emojis, pretty much anything. She also draws about desi sisterhood and being Sikh.
14. Jas from PotatoIsDrawing
Jas's drawings represent people of different colour, culture, gender and size. She reimagines cisgendered white heroes with different identities.
15. Shreya of 360.jpg
Shreya's drawings in support of the #UnfairAndLovely movement show that melanin is something to be worn with pride.
