We love stumbling upon really dope artists who celebrate the plus size form in varying sizes and shapes. Even more when it is paired with imagination and creativity! Such is the case of an awesome find of these plus size mermaids, created by the Honduran artist, D Jose Maldonado. This artist fashions most of his work with the plus size silhouette.
And we are here for it.
Plus size mermaids illustrated and painted with alluring, sensual, and playful poses? YES.
With full bellies? Ohhh yes.
Scrolling through his two Facebook pages, you can tell he has an extreme appreciation and fondness for the plus size body and hey, we will take it.
Being that we are at the start of swim season and have already teased out a few plus size one-piece suits, we thought it would be perfect to shine the light on his work and craft- all in the name of PLUS SIZE MERMAIDS!
Are you ready to see what we’ve found?
Plus Size Art: Plus Size Mermaids by D. Jose Maldonado
Hello! How cool and beautiful are these plus size mermaids??
If you had space or a place, would you want to feature a few of these in your home?
Not only does he do paint and feature mermaids, but you can also find portraits, sensual images, and one of our favorites- PLUS SIZE FAIRIES! If he had more of them, honey… we would have that feature since we have a huge affinity for fairies.
It was very hard to find out more information about D. Jose Maldonado and could not get much contact or about information on him.
Which ones are your favorite ones? Are you mesmerized as we are?
I love them and there are soooo many more pieces to peruse, but yes to the plus size mermaid. We are all the way here for her!
