My Little Pop Icons

Artist Mari Kasurinen explores the concepts of beauty and customization using My Little Pony figurines as her blank canvases. Mari became very interested in the whole customisation phenomenon while looking for a way to address individualism and materialism in her work The ponies, which had no limitations because of their plain and genderless nature, proved to be a perfect platform for Kasurinen’s sculptures. She says, "When we surround ourselves with things that are and look just the way we want them to, it gives us power and control over other people. In today's competitive world you have to know who you are and what you want. And you have to do it better, bigger and faster than anyone else."
