The Artist: badgrl ruru

"Ru’s Nudes, known as @badgrl.ruru on social media sites, is a campaign to promote the realistic, honest and destigmatised representation of womxn’s bodies in art form, to reflect the forms of art they truly are. It began as a body positivity and empowerment movement which has grown and developed into an angry fight against the impermissibility of female sexuality and the policing of womxn's bodies. This was sparked by both the policing of my artwork by instagram and the overwhelmingly positive response to my pieces of art. I drew a link between the reaction to the content I was creating and the current political context and contemporary debates such as around womxn’s rights, transgender rights and abortion law. Clearly, this is a conversation that needs to be had."
