‘Grow a pair’ (2018)

Protest art against gender expectations and inequality. At first glance ‘Grow a Pair’ is a pretty decorative illustration, but behold: Through the cuteness pierces a strong message about having to be cute, girly, feminine. The title ‘Grow a Pair’ (of balls, red) in combination with the shape of the cactusses also protests against the gender expectations that boys and men have to endure from a young age.

‘Grow a Pair’ is a protest against gender expectations and a cheeky encouragement to female artists to speak up through their art, rather than just decorate.
