Join the Polette 2021 Art Auction, celebrating female sexuality, until December 3rd.

Giada Maestra is an Italian freelance illustrator based in London, whose work mainly involves scenes of women in their everyday life, and promoting body positivity and sexual health. In her new series “Shame” Giada wanted to raise awareness against the normalisation of sexual and street harrassment.

The disappearance of Sarah Everard here in London on the 3 March 2021, has given me a strong need to come out and share my own experience. With this project I wanted to give representation to scenes considered normal, everyday stuff in our life as women. But THAT is not normal at all. Shame is for everytime we feel uncomfortable, observed, vulnerable, in danger.
