Buba’s story

Vitiligo is caused by the lack of melanocytes, a cell that gives the skin colour. It is not contagious and can affect anyone, independently from skin colour, age or ethnicity. It affects around 2% of the population. People with vitiligo often suffer from discrimination, unwanted attention and it can be psychologically devastating.

I used vitiligo as a source of inspiration and transformed it into a painting: an artwork that shows how beautiful these patches are. /Fanni

The sleeveless was showcased during the exhibition ‘The Perception of Beauty‘ in Nottingham, UK 2016 and during NAE OPEN Group Exhibition at New Art Exchange in 2019.
