Monica Kim Garza’s (Painting/Drawing 2010) paintings are an ode to carefree brown women of size.

Most of her work depicts full-figured ladies of different shades of mahogany baring breasts, nalgas, and chichos while relaxing in bed, shooting hoops, or lifting weights. Their bodies –- abundantly curvaceous –- are familiar, yet wildly underrepresented. And the level of chill they have achieved is a glimpse into the radical self love many of the artist’s fans desire for themselves.

For many of Garza’s more than 30,000 Instagram followers, the paintings refreshingly celebrate women in their full thunderous glory.
