Always a success when art is used to spread a message.

 

Laetita Ky is a fashion designer and a hair artist who creates sculptures out of her own dreadlocks. She has undoubtedly such a big talent and her imagination is brilliant. At first she didn’t have a meaning behind the dreadlock sculptures. But as she grew more popular, she decided to let the dreadlocks “speak about” gun control, sexual harassment, women’s right and self confidence.

“When I started posting, my sculptures didn’t really have meanings behind them; I just thought they were pretty, people remember what you say because of how you say it. My art is a bit unusual, so I thought, if I add a message, maybe it will stick.” Ky explained on how all this began in an interview with CNN.

She also described the process by saying “I don’t really plan a lot before doing them. I’m a pretty intuitive person, I mostly just have an image that comes to mind, like a flash. Then I try to draw it and figure out what I need for it to stay in place. Anything can inspire me: the news, an object. There are no rules.
