Visual artist Tortorella created this new series for today’s exclusive NAKID feature editorial titled, ‘Moustache Sauvage‘.
With an unapologetic representation of sexual phantasies, taboos, and vulnerabilities, Tortorella’s work wants to highlight freedom of expression in its purest form. A blunt sense of emancipation can in fact be found in the depiction of the human body with its natural imperfections and body hair and in particular the female one.
This is a clear critique of society’s physical standards, which are an aberration of reality, and only one of the many social conventions that are imposed on us. A brutal sensual frankness and a disarming sense of sarcasm in my work underline our inhibitions and fears, forcing the spectator to face them, and demonstrating how life must and needs to extend beyond these imposed stereotypes.
