Being naked is awesome, and rarely do we see that simple idea expressed as joyfully and with such variety as in Ebecho Muslimova's Fatebe drawings, which were plastered all over One Star Press' booth at the New York Art Book Fair this weekend. The Russian artist and Cooper Union alum's energetic alter ego lets it all hang out while executing acrobatics that range from the impossible to the downright impressive. Sometimes her drawings tackle the everyday struggles of womanhood, such as uncomfortable shoes and objectification, but Muslimova really shines when abandoning reality altogether and illustrating kooky contortions of female anatomy. I'll never be able to unsee the image of Fatebe straddling a ceiling fan, or her internal plumbing reimagined as chemical dumping pipes.
