Ailie Banks is an Australian illustrator who is making herself known to the public because of her contemporary and irreverent style. Her imagery is strongly influenced by a neo-feminist perspective, where the meanings associated with symbols, such as pink and words like “bitch”, are subverted.
In her illustrations it is very common to find women who are not depilated, often in intimacy with each other, free of inhibitions and taboos. The millennial pink becomes a symbol of rebellion, the soft background on which stand out strong contents, which have the purpose of freeing the female figure.
Growing up with a violent father, since childhood Ailie has found in the drawing her moment of peace and escape from her difficult domestic situation; for this reason, the artist immediately understood her artistic mission.
It is not easy to deal with such complex and multifaceted issues, what do you think?
