What happens when you combine a macho Russian security guard and a whole lot of Barbie dolls? Russian artist Uldus Bakhtiozina creates portraits that challenge common stereotypes about gender and culture—all with a playful dose of irony. Her aesthetic is inspired by Victorian Era paintings, each featuring a clever modern update and a message about societal norms. These two portraits specifically explore the internal struggle of her subjects to balance their masculine and feminine sides.

I’m glad the portrait of Ben Franklin stayed the same on the new $100 bill. There’s something about his slight, tight frown, the paternal hint of disappointment in his eyes and those pursed, sealed lips that seem to say, “I don’t approve of what you’re doing, but I can’t stop you from rolling this banknote into a straw and ripping a fat rail of white lightning in the Buffalo Wild Wings handicapped bathroom stall, you goddamn beautiful disaster.”
