When Artists Use Sex Dolls To Explore The Place Of Women In Our Culture

With her book Play with Me: Dolls, Women and Art, journalist Grace Banks has decided to document how artists use these sex dolls to explore the place of women in our culture. Between objectification, gender and caricature of the female body, these dolls for adults trigger a real ethical and political debate, which contemporary artists seek to dissect. In her book, Grace Banks gathers the work and interviews of 40 artists, centered on the use of these dolls but also on the representation of women in the visual culture. Via: Ufunk

Artist Creates Stunning Portraits of Famous People With Their Younger Selves

Ever wanted to say something to the younger you? Change happens. It's inevitable, especially as we grow older. 

So illustrator Fulvio Obregon decided to document these changes in one of the most creative ways, with celebrities .  

Last year, the artist created a series of illustrations called "Me & My Other Me," in which he drew iconic celebrities standing next to their younger selves. What makes these drawings so interesting it that you can still see, although time has passed,  the similarities that make them distinct. 

"Each person contains some detail of what has been their essence throughout their respective careers, life or profession," said Obregon. 

Recently, he added even more celebrities to the collection, and here are some of our favorite works...
