“Representativid’arte” Flaunts Real Beauty, Flaws and All

Representativid’arte is Portuguese for “representative art.” Started in 2014, this art project created by feminist artist divinalush shines a light on the various types of bodies that go unseen in the image-conscious media. Her tumblr is a compilation of drawings of real women, the ones who don’t have thigh gaps or been airbrushed to death. With a distinctive pointillism style, her drawings depict women with fat rolls, underarm hair and cellulite, showing the beauty of imperfections of various body types. And at only 8 months old, her project’s mission to change the perception of what’s considered beautiful has already resonated with thousands. Here’s hoping her project grows as more feminist artists get onboard. (Warning: NSFW)
