I'M SUPER FRIENDLY.

My friend Eddie of T-world asked me to guest speak at a new series of art/design classes hosted by Drawing Book Academy in Melbourne. I’m super dorky IRL also yes my slide says “don’t be basic”.

A great experience, thank you Eddie and DBA for inviting me! x

I found this photo of one of my paintings from last year bumping in my show - I notice a lot of people aren’t aware most of my art is painted, huge, and cut out of wood by me. Even some of my friends don’t realise I do all the woodwork myself, but I happily invite those bitches over to witness it for themselves hahaha. Girls can do anything, duh.

I always feel like I left a little piece of my heart in Melbourne, it’s probably with these two. x

I don’t really share the messages I’m lucky enough to receive but I thought that this one had some interesting points on kawaii culture and iconography. Thank you Aerynn!! ♥ ♥

Hi Bei,

Congratulations on the article, it looks great and you must be so pleased. I just wanted to say that is so inspiring that your work represents the best of kawaii culture, i.e subversive and empowering femininity, and absolutely none of the worst, so for you to be considered a kawaii icon means so much :) I’m majoring in Japanese Studies at the University of Oxford and specialising in contemporary art by women- sadly there is no room in my thesis to discuss non-Japanese artists, but I think your work is so significant in transforming the otherwise infantilising nature of ‘kawaii,’ on an international scale. I don’t know if you identify as feminist but your work seems to represent to me a reclaiming of cuteness by and for women, with strong messages of sex & body positivity that seem to have had a significant influence on other ‘kawaii’ artists, which is such a refreshing change from dominant images of cuteness in Japan. Anyway, this got a bit long, but I’m a big fan and enjoy following your work very much!

Stay cute,

Aerynn xx
