WONDERWALLS: SHINING THE SPOTLIGHT ON WOMEN STREET ARTISTS

The Women’s Forum Street Art Project shows how much we’re missing if we believe street art to be the exclusive province of men. Ten women street artists from around the globe take part and contribute artwork on theme "She's a Leader”.

Meet the women behind the walls...

“Every wall is a door,” said Camus. It is often in a hostile environment that men display their imagination. Street art is a good example."

“Cities are made by men for men, and to escape from danger, women put on invisible walls to protect themselves. But those walls can be destroyed if we have strong figures that we could related to. They can give us the freedom to explore places that are not given to us at first.”
