With all these nude and semi-nude selfies on social media featuring the perfect bikini bodies, artist Aleah Chapin thought she would show the world something different.

For her newest exhibition “Body / Being,” Chapin showcases honest nude portraits that explore gender and agings of the body. Inspired by the recent transition of her cousin, Qwill, the artist painted all types of different bodies, including both females and males, to show how similar we all really are in the end. “The whole point of [my current exhibit] is to show that we are all the same in the end, no matter if we are an 84-year-old man or a 30-year-old trans individual," said Chapin. "We all have struggles and experiences of being in a body, and if we could just focus on what we have in common instead of being afraid and judgmental of our differences, I think the world would be a much kinder place.”

I like it! I haven't seen a lot of artists do portraits of trans guys like that!
