Powerful Art That Brings Out the Monstrosity of Gender Bias and Racism

Capturing hearts and revolutionizing views is the work of art. Banksy is one such artist who has highlighted homelessness and the healthcare problems workers are facing in the UK with the dawn of the coronavirus. Oscar used bottle caps and made a mural highlighting Venezuela’s messed up system.

However, the latest innovation is the digital art by Dena Nguyen dubbed “This Is America,” drawing attention to racial and other ethnic stereotypes. Portraits of people of various racial backgrounds and ethnicities have written blatant statements meant to break stereotypes.

Dena, a graphic designer from Dallas Texas, started with the face of an Asian woman to down the stereotype surrounding the COVID-19 break-out. Thereafter she had a request by an African American saying that they are not a threat. This hits on police brutality and aggression.

On her request, Latino, Native American, and Arab women came forward. A woman in silhouettes addressed female gender stereotypes. Thus, an entire series materialized. Andrea Raudales posted the images on Twitter, which went viral, getting over 830 thousand likes and 350 thousand retweets less than a day later. Dena now strives to create an illustration a day.
