trUth Hong Kong-based Tanya Bennett’s illustrative art is an understated social commentary on the fashion industry, femininity and particularly our visual fixation with body mass or lack thereof. Uniquely mixing art and fashion illustration, the talented UK-born artist, through a subliminal form of reverse psychology, draws attention to the fashion industry’s obsession with weight whilst simultaneously celebrating the beauty within all women even if they don’t quite fit the norm.
