All you have to do is search #art on Instagram and see millions of brilliant artworks by artists from around the world. We personally like the ones with a strong message hidden inside them.
Here’s a list of three feminist illustrators who doodle their voice out on Instagram. Meet Frances Cannon, Polly Nor and Robin Eisenberg who love sharing their favourite feminist moments in creative forms on social media.
These three artists are known for brutally showing the world woman’s reality. Read about them and tell us how much you can relate to their quirky illustrations that describe anxiety, sexuality, feminism and everything ‘natural’ to do with women.
Frances’ work is all about self-love. She told Rookiemag, “It was spurred on when I got tired of treating myself poorly because I was not the media’s definition of beauty. I began obsessively drawing women who looked like me, and each time I drew these women (based on myself and my body) I felt more confident in myself and my body. I’ve really found something that I am so inspired by, and I think that my art will revolve around these themes for a really long time.

Polly loves talking about the women and the demon (read: sex drive) inside them. She told Coolhunting.com, “Through this very warped representation of sex and relationships, young girls are being taught that they are submissive, sexual objects for men to leer over, use and control, and led to believe that their value lies wholly in how sexy they are. But then, to make things even more confusing, our society also teaches females that being too sexual is shameful and vulgar. We should look available, but not too easy; we should be flirty, but not too forward; we should have sex, but not with too many people and so on. I’m interested in discussing and reacting to these conflicting pressures from a female perspective for a young female audience.”

Robin Eisenberg’s work shows women exploring their sexuality unapologetically. She told Laweekly.com, “The whole idea behind my drawings is that it’s kind of for yourself. I think it’s really important to have a strong sexual identity and feel comfortable and happy with yourself. Whatever anybody else thinks shouldn’t really come into play at all. … That should just be about you and not about anybody else.”

She added, “I dream that there are alien girls that just eat pizza in a bathtub and watch The X-Files and laugh about it. That would be amazing.”
Undoubtedly, the artworks of these women are extremely bold and true.
