If anyone has learned anything from comic books, many people have alter-egos to either fight crime or commit crimes; Juno Calypso, on the other hand, uses her alter-ego to explore a market left untapped by superheroes and supervillains: Femininity. Her staged tableaus are hilariously mundane, no matter how much makeup Juno Calypso's character Joyce has caked on. As though bored with life, Joyce is seen succumbing to the pressures of womanhood.

Born in London, England, Juno Calypso writes, "Trapped inside pastel coloured, disconcerting moments of ritualised absurdity--Juno Calypso's alter-ego mirrors the exhaustion felt whilst bearing the dead weight of constructed femininity." Juno Calypso's Joyce series is also immensely entertaining. It is no wonder she has two series and a video thus far. Stats for Alter-Ego Artist Self-Portraits Trending: Older & Buzzing
