Beauty & Technology. Viktoria Modesta, the ‘bionic’ artist who has shaken the world, is a British singer-songwriter and model. An example of altered beauty and strong personality.
Viktoria Modesta has become the sensation of the moment thanks to the premiere in a British channel of her first video, ‘Prototype’. No complex. She has a bionic leg, and a great creativity.
Viktoria Modesta was born on 25 February 1988. Due to a doctor’s negligence at her birth, Moskalova spent most of her childhood in and out of hospitals. In 2007, she had a voluntary below-the-knee leg amputation to improve her mobility and safeguard her future health. Her physicality has become known for challenging the modern perception of altered beauty.
“I have never felt comfortable thinking of myself as disabled and this has inspired me to actively challenge old-fashioned views and create a platform in mainstream pop-culture, with other artists, where I have always known I belonged.”
Today, enjoy ‘Prototype’ and tell us your opinion!
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
“The time for boring ethical discussions around disability is over. It’s only through feelings of admiration, aspiration, curiosity and envy that we can move forward.”
