Yudi Chen Switches Gender Roles in His Playful Fairy Tale Paintings

In his lovely fairy tale paintings, Yudi Chen depicts what it would have been like if the protagonist of popular stories had been a different gender. This simple switch makes for some humorous and interesting portrayals.

The pictures are reminiscent of the images used in old children's books with soft and classic-style cartoons. They are simple and yet, very pleasing to the eye, especially in a nostalgic sense.

What gives the fairy tale paintings even more charm is the clever titles Chen gives each one. Cinderella has been turned into Cinderfella and Beauty and the Beast into Beau and the Beast.
