Unanimous voting this week, in that there was only one vote. But it's a good one!
Yes this is sexist, and it isn't excused because it's "art" (which FYI art and the art world isn't excused from sexism either). - Firstly, this can't qualify as trompe l'oeil body painting, whichisamazing, and nudity (or some bare skin is a necessary part of the art). The nude women aren't disguised, their hair, necks, faces, and in some cases arms and lower bottoms are all unpainted. - It's more similar to the painting/make-up of Geisha, where a strip of skin is left unpainted to hint at the nude women beneath the decorations. It's meant to titillate the male viewer, not baffle the mind and eyes of anyone who sees. - So once again we have men using the bodies and sex of women to make money.
