Sneaking Female Curves Through Instagram's Ban
Her hairy avocados are hilarious.
Fempire 11 Jul 2018

Illustration Artist, Hong Kong

Claudia Chanhoi’s latest Instagram post is an pickle getting enlarged after a finger touch… From pickles to jelly in breast shape, from hairy avocado seed to juicy peach, the artist encodes her images with various easily recognizable motifs with sexual undertone. Encrypted in Claudia Chanhoi’s colourful cartoonish illustrations are some humourous or sarcastic messages or lighthearted jokes around female sexuality (Captions matter for that sake ;)). Since 2016, she has been posting her illustration work regularly on Instagram@brainxeyes while Instagram removed her illustration work several times because it was a female body part. Therefore, the early stage of her work marked the creative struggle between getting passed Instagram’s ban and pushing the boundaries.
