Japanese art style called ‘Kintsugi’ is the craft of repairing broken pottery with a mixture of gold, silver or platinum lacquer and powder. Japanese philosophy treats rupture and its repair as a part of the object’s history and therefore should not be disguised or hidden, they are accented and celebrated as the most important parts of the story.
This is the idea behind the project by a Pakistani artist Sarah Shakeel who is conquering many web users with her unusual photos. The artist is transforming the stretch marks into works of art using digital collage techniques.
The artist is inspiring people to accept and be proud of their stories and encourages followers to send pictures of their stretch marks for her to turn them into art.
