Thais Carla
Thais Carla
acrylic on canvas
8 x 10

Thais Carla rose to infamy in Brazil when she competed in a televised dance competition in her God-given body and shocked people with her artistry, charisma, and athleticism. These days, she shares her life with 3.1 million followers on Instagram, giving us a glimpse into her life as a wife, mother, and incredibly sexy fat woman. A visit to the comments on any of her posts reveals a nearly even split between compliments and insults, but Thais Carla seems unaffected. In this painting, I wanted to depict her in all her glory - soft, strong, beautiful, and confident. Thais Carla isn't waiting for the world to change before she starts living her life, and we shouldn't either. The world might just change as a result.
