Week 9 Artist Interview: Myra Flores

Myra Flores’ art piece is called The Last of the Famous International Playboys. It was a sculpture of a man’s head that is considered handsome with bunny ears and a bow tie on it. This was to send a very powerful message. It is showing how it is depicting men in a “playful” with the bunny ears and bow tie and how strange it looks. But in reality, women are depicted like this all the time, especially in playboy magazines. It is saying how strange it looks on men, so it should look strange on women too. However, society has made it look so normal for women to be depicted this way when it shouldn’t be this way. This is an art piece with a strong message.
