Spanish artist David Lopera has recently started a new project that had him editing the photos of popular female celebrities like Katy Perry and Jennifer Lawrence, to make them look “heavier” than their usual selves.
In his project, Lopera digitally manipulated the photos of these celebrities with Photoshop to make them look “plus-size”, which later sparked an online debate about its impact on the body positivity movement.
Lopera explained on his Facebook page that his project was about making people accept “the big women a little bit more.”
David started doing it for his own amusement, but he suddenly started getting requests from others.”‘Men are always writing to me asking if I can make their celebrities crushes look a bit fatter.” he writes to Daily Mail. “Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence and Kim Kardashian are some of the most popular requests I get. These women look much better when they’re overweight” Apparently, he puts his money where his mouth is, since 20 year old artist claims to be dating a plump woman himself.
