About the piece

Beauty Is Might is one of three illustrations by artist and visual communicator Liza Forslund where she, by the aid of digital illustration, explores beauty and female beauty standards. Is the world of beauty solely ruled by the patriarchy where female interests are downgraded or can it be a way of manifesting and reclaiming our own femininity? Having long finger nails could be considered as beauty to the extreme but also a way of treating beauty as an self-expression and a sort of fuck off to the norms of society.

About the artist

Liza Forslund (b. 1993) is an artist who lives in Stockholm. Forslund is to be a BA (Bachelor) graduate in Visual Communication at Beckmans College of Design in the spring of 2017. She has a background in classical painting, attending the art school Pernbys Målarskola in 2012- 13 and has since then levitated towards illustration and later Graphic Design and Art Direction. Forslund feels that the way of creating within all three fields are very similar since it’s all about communicating a feeling and a message by visual communication. Women’s discourses are something that inspires Forslund and she tries to include that in all of her work whether it is an illustration or art directing a photoshoot.
