FINNISH artist Mari Kasurinen has delighted fans with a modern adoption of the classic children’s toy My Little Pony by capturing them in a modern twist reflecting a range of pop icons, including some very well-known gay culture icons.
On the artist’s website, the collection is described as:
“We live in a visual culture and are treated as if we were starring in a reality TV-show. Our external appearance has to represent our inner qualities. Features which are not approved by the media are forbidden and will be comforted with aggressiveness or total denial. We are all expected to be super stars – to look like one and to live like one.”
