Performance artist has a unique way of protesting lockdown and mask rules

It’s a generally accepted fact that weird stuff can happen when you go to Trader Joe’s these days, but some instances tend to stand out more than others.

Such was the case last week when “artivist” (“artist” and “activist,” in the loosest sense of both words), DaVida Sal donned a bikini made out of protective masks and flaunted about one of Joe’s Los Angeles locations, a sight that nobody wanted to see.

Referring to her “art” exhibit as “The New AbNormal,” Sal protested the coronavirus lockdown with her outfit, wearing masks on nearly every part of her body- except her face, of course.

“If the MASKS work, WHY the 6 feet?” she wrote. “If the 6 feet works, WHY the Masks? If BOTH work, WHY the LOCKDOWN?”

Sal has an extensive education background via various acting schools, and her portfolio shows that she is rather comfortable with showing skin.

Her art project was reportedly inspired by criticism she received on social media after she was seen in a store without a mask.
