Woman Creates Very Strange Self Portraits, Calls It Art

Finnish woman Iiu Susiraja calls herself an artist. She captures herself in very… very… unorthodox scenarios… We are kinda confused, is this art or not? Please leave your opinion in comments.

    Amazing work! The compositions are perfect. I love the one with the breadloaf earlocks on the treadmill. Thanks Liu!

    It’s definitely art! These photos about the mood of Diane Arbus photos.

    Let’s release the tension and have a good laugh. If it’s or entertainment,I don’t know but it makes me smile.

    This is not art in my opinion, this is sad. I would hope to never see this in a muesuem ,but based on a lot of these comments one would ecpect to. I do not believe any of the masters would ever make that the subject of a painting and if so only as a joke.

    Looks like fun. Art is usually sadder.

    It is not necessarily beautiful, but it is wonderful and it IS art.

    Andy Warhol would LOVE your work! And I love it BIG time. 🥂🍾 Here’s to unfettered, inspired creativity 🙏🏽

    Fantastic photography on its own, the creative poses, props and compositions are next level

  22. Pekka March 21, 2020

    This is ready for Moma and Guggenheim .

    Better than most of the excrement that goes for art these days. She does have creativity, sense of irony, humor and aesthetics.

  24. Tanja March 21, 2020

    It definitely is 😂

  25. Marie March 21, 2020

    It’s art, because it has esthetics, expressivity and idea beyond each photo. I think we get amused about the specific shape of the woman’s body. Don’t you agree that if there was a supermodel instead everyone would all of a sudden find it pretty?
    I love that picture with a cup on her breast.

  26. randy sexton March 21, 2020

    I think these are brilliant. Reminds me of Steven Colbert’s upside down comedic satire in “The Colbert Report”….these are insanely bold, creative, and ballsy images – beautifully done!

    Love, LOVE, LOVE! Beautiful woman.

    it’s beautiful

  30. Philip March 22, 2020

    Love it, so refreshing! thank you to keep the spirit alive .

  31. Anonymous March 22, 2020

    Certainly entertaining.
    But not “beautiful” by any stretch of the imagination (it really is a pity she’s so obese).
    Art? Simply because her odd props are amusing, and the pics are well taken, doesn’t make it “art”.
    It’s quirky photography, no more.

    I’d say if the intention is to express oneself and create an emotional response in the viewer then its art. Without the first it’s just accidental, without the second it’s just a recording of something. To me these works qualify. Some are powerful.

  33. Betsy Brewer March 22, 2020

    Art-the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
    Even if it confuses you or you hate it can be considered. It stirred emotion in me and that is what art is supposed to do.

  34. Just some artist. March 23, 2020

    Yes it’s art, because it was made by an artist for the purposes of art. What’s there to be confused about?

  35. ArtTeach March 23, 2020

    Of course it’s art! Her images are carefully thought out, composed and crafted. They display many design principles.

    absolutly art, courageous and wonderfully raw. respect.

    Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb it comfortable.

    Beautiful; thought provoking; wonderfully crafted; revealing… visceral. Thank you to the artist.

    Wonderful art

    I have a doctorate in art history and I work as a museum curator. I have no reservations about calling these photos art. As others have stated, it has affinities with Dianne Arbus. I would add Cindy Sherman as a precedent. The images evoke intense emotional reactions that may encourage viewers to think deeply about a variety of ideas and assumptions.

  42. leigh g March 26, 2020

    yup! Dat art…

  43. Rayna Collins March 27, 2020

    I love these so much. They are brilliant.

  44. Mark Ratzlaff April 2, 2020

    Anything not preoccupied with survival or reproduction is art on some level. Is it good art? No. It’s friggin Great! Charm, sadness, wit, irony, poetry.. it’s all here.

    Great artist. Her art reminds me of the “One Minute Sculptures” by austrian artist Erwin Wurm.
