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.
Miss Tic (1956) is a Parisian visual artist and poet, one of the pioneers of street art in France. She is known for her stencils of a dark-haired woman often seen on the streets of Paris and associated with poetry.
Miss.Tic transcribes her daily life in stencils which are generally based on the combination of “self-portrait plus a one-line poem”. Her poems are often composed of a few words in the same writing style that she developed. The wild and dark hairstyle of the seventies of his subjects is recognizable among all. Its stencils are usually applied in a single coat.
Recognized very early in her practice, Miss.Tic is now an icon of urban art. His works are presented regularly in public spaces, galleries and international art fairs.
