Another Fat Friday. Another new found artist on Pinterest.
I love finding new fat art on Pinterest; but I hate when I have to work so hard to find out who the artist is. However, I always make a concerted effort to put a name to the artwork. These people and their talent deserve to be recognized.
Anyhow. I finally found out that this artist is Els Lam. She seems to be from the Netherlands and that’s about it. Her website is expired. I found her art for sale on a website but there was no accompanying bio or profile – except to refer you to the expired website.
I love these figures. I love art that shows fat bodies doing things that are usually the domain of thin bodies.
These figures are clearly performers of some sort – perhaps a fat circus?
Cirque du so-fat!
The actual figures are quite basic but everything else about them is highly stylized. I love the little details – like the eyelashes and the garter belts.
I hope you enjoy these samples and check out some more of Els Lam’s work on my Pinterest page: https://www.pinterest.com/terriweitze/fat-figures-els-lam/
