Toni Mazuranic’s ‘Plastic Divas’ Criticizes Fashion Fake Perfectionism

Toni Mazuranic is a Croatian, Zagreb-based artist whose visually stunning painted collages touch both sensitive and taboo issues. One of the subjects is the perpetual pursuit of standardizing the women through plastic surgery and identity anihiliation for the sake of fashion.

According to Atelier Home Gallery (Italy), Mazuranic’s mind-bending pieces represent “a variety of themes related to the influence of popular media on women and contemporary beauty standards of Western society”. Her process is as complex as it can get. “She takes imagery directly from the world she is currently focused on – women’s and fashion magazines – altering the content through collage which is then turned into a painting”.
