I am all about girl power, especially when it comes to male dominated fields – like Hip-Hop, graf arts, and countless others. So, I was thrilled to get an update on the homie TOOFLY’s experience at @ Art Basel, where she participated on the first female only wall there. Check out what she had to say about being part of Few & Far and see some pics below…
I made it back this year to rock a collabo wall with the Few & far graff/street art ladies. It was such a blast to get together again, and rep the ONLY ALL WOMEN WALL at ART BASEL. Super proud of that. It’s been a long time coming since 2003 when the NYC graff ladies got together to rock an all women wall at the Graffiti Hall of Fame. Thanks to Lady Pink “herstory” was made. As I think back to those days, and check out the flicks today, I can say I am proud of how far it’s come. Women everywhere are getting together and creating the environment they want. A cipher that’s at peace with one another, creative, and fun. It’s all I ever wanted, and I’m happy to keep the tradition alive for those loving hearts I meet along the way…
