22 Mar Not your jurassic patriarchy: Meet Anja Venter’s alien babes
We first laid eyes on Anja Venter aka Nanna’s divine Mutiny Girls at a group exhibition which she, Maaike Bakker and Jean de Wet took part in last month. The show explored the power of illustration to function as an instrument of revolt. Aptly, Anja’s irregular-eyed alien babes are ready to wreak havoc on the patriarchy, sporting slogans like “Legalize Tits”, “Pro-Voice Club” and “Jurassic Patriarchy” on their clothing.
These badass women were created as part of Anja’s personal challenge to do a new drawing each day, which you can follow on her Instagram – check out her series of famous best friends, too.
See the girls (who you’ll wish were your besties) in all their glory here, as well as a short comic from a collaborative zine created for the MUTINY exhibition. If you’re interested in purchasing prints, find the details at the bottom of this post.
The individual girls are available as signed, limited edition art prints for R300 each (Inkjet print on True Fibre 200gsm, 230mm x 210mm) and the large posters are going for R950 each (Inkjet print on True Fibre 200gsm, 594mm x 720mm). Email Anja directly if you’re interested in making a purchase.
