LAST CHANCE Ghida Younes: My Fat Lady
31 December 2018
Playful watercolours and drawings by Lebanese artist Ghida Younes: “My Fat Lady is my alter ego and I live fearlessly through her. She is the fat lady in me and I believe that every one of us has one. She’s a celebration of indulgence, generosity, freedom, fearlessness, extravagance, colours, and all things beautiful and positive. She is happy in her body. She feels light and acts light”. The character emerged from a personal experience for the artist, when she lost weight but feared losing her character with it. Younes was conforming to a social norm; in her art, she was able to break those conventions.
