Behind the Beautiful Mask: A Collage Series by Natvipa Tejapaibul

The entertainment and fashion industries seem like wonderlands of glamour and success. But there is another side to this beautiful story. Many models and actors are physically and mentally abused and assaulted, and there is heavy exploitation of fast fashion workers in third world countries. We’re only able to grab a glimpse of the truth from the news now; there is something dark behind the appealing masks of what it takes to be and sell “beautiful” in our society.

“Nana” Natvipa Tejapaibul was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand. She is a recent graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Graphic Design, and is currently based in New York. See more of her work here.
