Cool Female Street Artists – Part One

Cool Female Street Artists – Part One

When you think of street artists, do you automatically think of guys? More of the well known street artists are men, so it would be no surprise if your answer was “yes”. However, there are loads of very cool street artists around the world who are women … and the aliases they use don’t always speak to their gender.

Street art may have, many years ago, been the purview of men, but that has long since passed. Just search online for vintage street artists and see results showing women as far back as one hundred years ago creating pavement art. Today, lots of girls and women are making their mark on the urban landscape alongside Banksy, David Zinn, and their peers.

Just a few of the top female street artists to know about include:
