Raw and Empowering: My Feminist Artwork
Unfiltered Art Depicting Women’s Struggles and Pain (NSFW Art)
Happy International Women’s Day to all my readers! Today, I want to share with you a collection of my non-commercial artwork that reflects my passion for feminism and woman empowerment. As a fine artist, my anger towards the oppression of women has always been embedded in my art.
When I was studying psychology, I always viewed things through a feminist lens. I learned about the evolutionary and social processes that explained the oppression of women throughout history. However, I soon discovered that some interpretations of evolutionary psychology can be used to justify sexist attitudes and beliefs. Nevertheless, my passion for feminism only grew stronger. Being a woman myself, I have experienced various forms of oppression from society, which is the driving force behind my artwork.
In this post, I am showcasing some of my personal sketches that are rarely uploaded on my blog because they are not the pretty paintings that people usually expect from me. These sketches are raw and unfiltered, and they depict the struggles and pain that women face every day.
Some of my paintings are centered around sexuality, which is a taboo subject in my Indian society. There is a general discomfort around the topics of sexuality and sexual needs of women. Moreover, there is a major taboo around the concept of virginity, which is a sexist and harmful concept that puts pressure on women to form unrealistic standards. Through my art, I want to break these taboos and make people aware of the importance of sexual freedom and reproductive rights for women.
Another subject that I address in my artwork is oppression of a woman’s voice in society. I may not have experienced workplace harassment personally, but I have heard stories of women struggling in workplaces with lower pay and a general lack of respect. As an artist, I want to make people aware of these oppressive societal structures that need to be broken down to improve women's mental and physical health.
Now, let me make it clear that feminism is not about being superior to men. It is about equality and equity. Feminism is not about bringing men down, but it is about creating a structure that is empowering for all genders. It is about acknowledging the diverse experiences and struggles of women and creating a society where everyone is valued and respected.
In conclusion, my artwork is my way of expressing my anger towards the oppression of women and my belief in feminism. I hope that my artwork inspires more people to break free from societal norms and empower themselves. Remember, every woman is beautiful, powerful, and worthy of respect. Let's celebrate ourselves and each other every day!
