Rurru Mipanochia‘s characters have bellies, pimples, lots of hair and most of them are amputees or use orthopedics. Rurru believes all bodies are beautiful in their own way and they don’t need to be within the established pattern of beauty to be sexy. In her work she tries to promotes dissident sexualities, as she believes that we should not feel like freaks if we have different ideas of sex as the ones imposed by the system. Also, her work illustrates some prehispanic deities of sex such as Tlazolteotl Huehuecoyotl and Macuilxochitl. Check her Facebook page here.
