“The alias often doesn’t indicate the gender.  It might be the reason why we don’t have a clear idea of how many women street artists are actually out there. Some artists do not announce their feminine identity, feeling that being a woman shouldn’t change the perception of their art. By all means, the street art is no longer the exclusive boy’s club. It took some time, but the time has come. Graffiti art is being increasingly taken over by women and girls are literally leaving their mark in the public sphere. Our list only scratches the surface. We are sure that we have overlooked many great and promising women who are street artists, which may be a good excuse for a new article, but these ten girls are pushing the boundaries of urban art at the moment.  Working in diverse styles and media, some of them consciously advocate feminine element in street art, while others go beyond gender.”

You have to check out these badass babes!  Maya Hayek just for example, “Is a feminist who will not work with galleries who exhibit less than 10% female artists. Hayuk is known for her massively scaled abstract murals characterized by intricate patterns, symmetrical compositions and super bright colors. Her work can be found all over the world.”
