Street Art Legends - Lady Pink

Légendes du Street Art - Lady Pink
Each week, HIYA Gallery looks back on the history of art and more precisely on the history of street art and its associated movements. We try to highlight the pioneers of this movement who have become legends, the mythical works that have left their mark in the history of street art, as well as important cultural events concerning the development of street art and graffiti, such as books rare or cult, exhibitions making reference in the history of the movement, films and other events.
We believe that in order to understand and feel the art of our time, we must constantly learn where it came from and what its roots are. That is why, alongside the representation and promotion of artists, we want to share with you knowledge about the history of street art.

 Lady pink

The pioneer of the New York graffiti movement Lady Pink was born Sandra Fabara (1964). Lady Pink made her first graffiti in 1979 in the New York subway when she was only 15 years old. She has been nicknamed the “First Lady of Graffiti” because she was one of the first women to be active on the nascent New York graffiti scene of the early 1980s. For Lady Pink, graffiti was an act of rebellion that brought her to life. allowed to express herself as a young independent female artist, passionate about her art. She wanted to stand up to those who opposed her potential, and the graffiti allowed her to do so.

However, his works are not made just for rebellion, they are stimulating and informative. With her and her personality, she has inspired generations of women and men to pursue their creative path and to express themselves through their art.
