Women Street Artists: 24 Contemporary Graffiti and Mural Artists from Around the World
By Alessandra Mattanza, foreword by Stephanie Utz.
The power, glory, diversity, and talent of
women street artists finally gets the attention it deserves in the first book to focus solely on the female gaze writ large on urban walls and sidewalks across five continents.
If street art is, in itself, an act of rebellion, it is tragically ironic that the genre seems dominated by men. This exciting book is an important first step in shedding light on the substantial number of women who are gaining fame in the street art world. It brings together the work of 24 artists, through dazzling photographs of their work and intimate portraits of their lives based on interviews collected by award-winning journalist Alessandra Mattanza.
