UK-based Asian artist Kully Rehal understands the struggles of immigrants deeply. Her parents were immigrants from Asia as well. Growing up listening to them talk about their culture and people made her want to start this art project, which she calls ‘Superhero Aunties.’
She centred them around Marvel Comics’ superheroes, and about her inspiration, she says:
Here are some of her quirky yet brilliant artworks.
1. Billo Auntyji
2. Captain Shanti Devi
3. Dead-phool Auntyji
4. The Incredible Hulkwinder
5. Joker Auntyji
6. Sherni-O Aunty
7. Ishpider Bhen
8. Bulbreen Aunty
This is some really heartwarming art, and in that she pays homage to the crux of the society!
