I fell in love with Lady Pink at El Museo del Barrio. They were having an exhibition called “The S Files” on New York City street art, so my sister & I went to check out. Lady Pink is recognized as the first female to have done it (came on the scene in the 70’s) &.. that’s big since the graffiti world seems to be (like many other worlds) dominated by men. In the video below, she talks about how intimidating it was –not due to the art, but from being 5’2 and 90lbs meeting people in dark alleys so she could do her work. But she did it.
She deserves a huge S/O.
