Prairie Fruit Arts X Unbelts – Unbelts Canada

Prairie Fruit Arts X Unbelts

A limited-edition artist collab and Pride Month fundraiser celebrating the diversity of breasts and chests.


ABOUT THE ARTWORK

โ€œFreeing the nipple always seems to be about freeing one kind of nipple. With this design I tried to combat that โ€“ I wanted to not just normalize, but celebrate the diversity of our chests. I've had big saggy boobs, I've had perky (but scarred) boobs, and these days I have no boobs. Each under-represented in their own way. This design is intended to be a colourful confetti of chests, including many kinds of chests that you don't see represented enough: man boobs, single mastectomy chests, chest-feeding boobs, top surgery scars, and more. I went with a colouring book kind of style in an attempt to capture the innocence, the silliness, and most importantly โ€“ the joy. The joy of seeing yourself represented.โ€ - Spencer
