Dita Von Teese I wanted to talk about the situation with Sveta’s artwork on Instagram here in a new post; I didn’t delete the Sveta post sooner here on the app, because I was thought it may serve as a space for those who want their opinions heard. But at the same time, I want to remove it, as I did with my posts promoting her elsewhere. (The other part of this is that I can’t actually remove posts myself immediately from the app; I need to ask the app developers to remove it; editing posts is not in my hands like socials are!)

When I found out about the artist’s offensive art, I removed any of my previous posts of her artwork that depicts me, and I have also stepped away from working with her.
As a public figure, my likeness is frequently the subject of art, and occasionally, I allow an artist to replicate my image—even though I don’t know them personally, as in this case. I could never have anticipated that this artist would post such an image in the days after I showcased her artwork of me on my social media. I reached out to her, she removed the post, and I encouraged her to educate herself on why such imagery is so offensive.
I would like to believe that most of us have the capability to learn, grow and evolve our art in a way that empowers others.
