What Happens When Architecture Meets The Female Body (NSFW)

What began as physical insecurities and untapped artistic talent is now a unique art form of erotic graphic collages for Giulia, the artist otherwise known as @scientwehst. Growing up, Giulia recalls always being self-conscious of her image, ashamed of her curves and "thickness," until she learned to be appreciative of her body. It's this learned self-confidence that has become the center of Giulia's graphic collages, allowing her to push boundaries regarding sexuality and censorship of the female form. By strategically placing architectural elements onto images of the female body, Giulia is ever so slightly bypassing Instagram's strict censorship rules. Via: Design Your Trust
