The Poster Monday spot of the day goes to Esin Karabenli for the poster “Improper Necklace.” Esin is a student at Yeditepe University in Istanbul, Turkey, and works as freelance comic book artist and illustrator who works with different techniques and styles.
This poster presents a view to a great world problem, “passive violence” against women. A society that sees a beautiful woman only as an object is an example of this type of violence against women. “I wanted my poster to show classic magazine advertising: red lips, smooth white skin, a reference to new fashion and “vampirish beauty,” but at the neck there is no a necklace and in its place are a man’s hands. This represents all the society’s beauty standards with cosmetics, jewelry and uncomfortable clothes women try to fit int0. We don’t need any of them!” says Esin.
You can see more project from Esin Karabenli on her behance account.
