That's right, Lil Miquela is actually a computer generated 3D sim, allegedly created by an artist named Arti Poppenberg. But for many of her Instagram fans that doesn't really matter. Despite the fact that she is not actually human, her photos serve the same purpose as those of real life Instagram models.Sure, any talented computer animator could create a lifelike character, but what sets apart Lil Miquela is her piercing cultural and social relevance. She is a self-proclaimed "art thot", she experiments with avant-garde makeup, and wears brands that everyone on Instagram is talking about.

But her fans believe she is real. Lil Miquela's most die-hard fans believe that she is the altered appearance of an actual person. "Yes she's real, she's a student in visual arts and such so she works on her pictures she takes of herself," one fan wrote. So she's real but this is her "art" if you wanna call it that."Well, whoever handles her account is sure talented. She also shares memes, photos with friends, and even motivational messages. She roots for the LGBTQ+ community as well.
