Painting season officially begins for me this weekend at the ATUNTAQUI International Graffiti/Street Art Festival in Atuntaqui Ecuador. A small town near Otavalo which I love very much. It’s also a great time to celebrate women’s international month, so Vera, Myself, and a few others will be reppin’ for the ladies. Shout out to Bolivar, lead organizer of the event. Thank you for the invitation!

Women Street Artists: Episode 4 ¬†featuring TooFly by Alexandra Henry is up! I had the pleasure of building with Alex in Lima, Peru last year during the “Nosotras Estamos en la Calle” Women Arts festival. The weather was sweet, and we were both finally living the artist life. Traveling, freelancing, and doing what we love. We met up later that year in New York where she rocked the first interview at 5Pointz before the whitewash. It would be the last time the Love Warrior Wall would be shot on film. At the end of 2013 we made sure to meet up at Miami Art Basel for some live painting footage at the Few & Far¬†all women wall collaboration in Wynwood . It was a great time for all the ladies to be in Miami this past December because it women in street art were finally getting some shine! The “Women on the Walls”¬†exhibition at Wynwood Walls¬†was a great example. The art world had finally taken notice of our work, and contribution to graffiti/street art.¬†I’m happy to be part of her latest photo & video project – WOMEN STREET ARTISTS. Thank you Alexandra <3
THIS IS A PHOTOGRAPHIC AND VIDEO EXPLORATION OF WOMEN STREET ARTISTS THAT AIMS TO FOSTER CULTURAL AWARENESS BY LOOKING AT THE LIVES OF TALENTED ARTISTS CURRENTLY CREATING IN CITIES AROUND THE WORLD. THIS DOCUMENTARY INVESTIGATES THEIR ARTISTIC STYLE AND MESSAGING WHILE IT ALSO PEEKS INTO THEIR DAILY LIVES WITHIN THE URBAN LANDSCAPE. AS EACH WOMAN’S STORY IS TOLD, A NARRATIVE TO THE HISTORY OF WOMEN COMING ON TO THE GRAFFITI / URBAN ART SCENE WILL BE ESTABLISHED.

Back from Paradise! I looooved Cartagena Colombia. Decided to dip out for a few days to kick it with some friends traveling thru. With only 3 hours away from Ecuador why not! Cartagena is beautiful. The colonial town with blooming flowers on it’s balconies, vendors of all kinds on the street selling; ice cold fruit drinks, hot colombian coffee, salty hot sauce fruits, grilled arepas with cheese, empanadas, seafood, the list goes on. Street food is the bomb. There was cute shops everywhere filled with their classic colorful wayuu bags. Read moreShare No comments
