Kukula

Having studied at a school of design and illustration in Tel Aviv, Kukula, from Israel, takes inspiration from illustrations for children, pin-ups and dolls to give shape to her graceful characters, who live in a world in which fantasy and reality are inextricably intertwined. The female protagonists in her paintings are women trapped in the bodies of children, while never losing the poses and postures of adults. Here too, fable-like appearances conflict with the often erotic narrative of the content. In her paintings, Kukula manages to combine the affected aesthetics of the Victorians with contemporary fetish imagination.
