Badass Indian Pinups

We love this series of paintings by Indo-Canadian artist Nimisha Bhanot titled "Badass Indian Pinups”. She told Quartz magazine that her work “explores the perception of self and societal roles from a bi-cultural perspective.”

It's refreshing to see female South Asian artists challenge mainstream thought and imagery surrounding the perception of women. Old school ideals need to go. In order to evolve as a society, it's critical that we work towards gender equality.
