Bei Badgirl is a real-life Asian fantasy. Her candy-cane artwork carries the curvy sexuality of Miss Van, or Fafi, with seedier sexual overtones – bondage features heavily, alongside candy cane colours and strange Pokémon-style creatures on leashes. She’s recently returned to Australia from shows in the UK, we caught up with her ahead of this year’s charity art event, Sidewayz, to talk about bad bitches and cute stuff.
