GRL PWR 💪: TOP 5 BEST FEMALE GRAFFITI ARTISTS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Our top 5 picks of female graffiti artists you should follow.

In this post, we have set out to “break a spear” and make the female graffiti artist a little more visible. These are, according to our criteria and without the intention of detracting from other artists, the top 5 female graffiti artists in the world!

Top 5 best female graffiti artists

LadyPink

Lady Pink is an Ecuadorian-American muralist and graffiti artist. She follows the path of empowering women through graffiti and murals as acts of self-expression and rebellion. She says “It’s not just a boys’ club. We have some brotherhood.”

Her nickname is “the first lady of graffiti” because she was one of the first female graffiti artists in this field in New York in 1980. She grew up wanting to pursue architecture as her father did. She began her career in graffiti writing and studied at Manhattan’s High School of Art & Design.

In 1980, she created an all-female graffiti team called “Ladies of the Arts”. She was also introduced to graffiti teams like TPA and TC5. Also in that year, she was included in “GAS: Graffiti Art Success” at Fashion Moda New York.

The main theme that she wants to express is feminine sensitivity and beauty, she is able to represent a wide range of incredible contrasts and changes.

“I believe that art should be seen in all possible places, to bring a white wall to life and turn it into a story. My passion is to create, to be available to tell a story with my hands and make it visible to everyone. Images that involve you in that story. That feeling is what makes me love being an artist.”
