Juno Birch is a transgender artist based in the UK who takes a funny approach to her artwork.
“I try not to take art too seriously because humour was a massive thing for me growing up,” she tells Dazed. “Taking the piss out of everything was my way of coping with being trans.”
Her work features “alien beauties” who go grocery shopping in g-strings, women smearing their lipsticks in 1950s diners and wearing retro sunglasses. It’s all in pastely, soft colors and with an illustrative style and some women look like aliens.
She explains: “I love Stepford Wives because all the women are robots underneath, and the thing with robots is they are artificial and they’ve built themselves, and that’s how I feel a lot of the time. I’ve built my own body by taking pills and having surgery, so I associate with characters like that.”
