Marina Bychkova Inspiration

Following on from my research into art dolls I discovered an amazing artist who creates art dolls with both aesthetic and conceptual beauty. Marina Bychkovas dolls are not only exquisitely detailed and hyper-realistic, but each of them has a conceptual identity, telling a complex visually emotional story. Her creations touch upon subjects such as racism, teen pregnancy, tattoo discrimination, religious prejudice, and cancer survival, to mention only a few. The use of each dolls aesthetics as it’s own silent narrative is very appealing, and speaks to how a static object can be used to tell a complex story in it’s own right.
