My Body, My Rights

“My Body, My Rights” is a new collaboration between Amnesty International and the Japanese artist Hikaru Cho to combat sexual exploitation and harassment against women. Cho uses the human body as her canvas to paint her hyperrealist 3-D artworks. Gazing upon them it is hard to believe that they are solely the work of Cho’s brush and not digitally constructed.
