The fat women art of Kristy Milliken, a former photographer in the amateur porn industry who is based in Melbourne, Australia, offers refreshing imagery in a reality starved world. Sick of being bombarded with images of too-skinny women, Milliken put down her camera and picked up a paint brush instead to create lovely illustrations of plump ladies proud of their bodies yet also pressured to be slimmer.

Posing nude and even draped in strings of pasta from time to time, the fat women art series shows how they are both bound and freed by their eating habits. As written on her website, "Her art reflects the beauty she sees in supermarket lines rather than magazine pages." Stats for Fat Women Art Trending: Older & Mild
