CENSORSHIP: Content Ban, Shadow Ban

What reason was given for your ban?

Nudity in my paintings.

Why do you think your post(s) was censored?

Because Instagram constantly suppresses Women’s bodies.

What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?

My account, my work was muted.

One of the most important things for an artist is to find “your unique style”, so I started from portraits to drawing faces and bodies. But then I realise that I wanna paint bodies in monochromatic…naked bodies. So as soon as I wanted to share my pastel drawings on instagram or Facebook they were deleted. for a few times . Back then there wasn’t such a thing as appeal, so I got a shadowban. I censored them, but how can you express yourself if there is a ban on just a painting of beautiful women’s bodies? Even the progress of paintings was deleted from stories on instagram and even on Tik Tok. But you know what is more frustrating? The fact that when I painted and posted man’s “Richard” I got no complaints at all.

Why is social media won’t let artists do what they love to do the most and how can we share our talent and passion with the world?

What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?

There is no life for artist in the media, you can’t express yourself otherwise if you’re not painting ponies in the sun
