Venus Libido is the artist illustrating your feminist fantasies

Celebrating the raw reality of womanhood...

Deconstructing the feminine ideals one leg hair at a time, Venus Libido’s artwork epitomises just the attitude you need to start 2019 off with. Breaking down long stereotyped expectations of women, from staying in the kitchen to ‘improving’ yourself with every beauty trend possible, Venus’ style is instead honest, if a little tongue-in-cheek. Working with one of our 2019 ones to watch recently, Ashnikko, the illustrator created a sharp video for the feminist track ‘Invitation’, calling out all the creeps and instead ensuring female autonomy.

Reflecting the bitterness and frustration us women feel on the daily basis from misogyny and the patriarchy, Venus Libido’s work is a breath of fresh air, speaking the truths many are unable or unused to articulating. Shared by the likes of Rihanna – who reposted a very relatable image of one of Venus’ characters turning on a blender full of dicks – Venus Libido is as relevant and needed as ever. With an online site full of captivating prints and even some much-needed merch (think pink dick candles to burn and hairy legs tote bags), there’s something for every feminist in your life.
