This Artist Makes Important Social Commentry with His Nude Disney Art

Artist Dillon Boy released a series of controversial nude Disney art pieces featuring the famous Disney princesses as Playboy-esque cover models. These 'covers' have a dingey, graffiti-like art style to them, and though the princesses are smiling and seductive, the ink runs down their eyes like mascara on a crying girl and some are even depicted smoking. These details raise many questions, not just about the art pieces, but society as a whole.

Boy uses these pictures to convey how pervasive sex is in our culture, as well as the false notion of purity and perfection. By seemingly corrupting these pure, perfect images we have of the Disney princesses, Boy deconstructs the ideas marketed to girls and women at different stages in their lives. This set of nude Disney art is as provocative and compelling as it is controversial.
