MissMe has been busy wheat pasting, preaching, and taking no prisoners. Her explosive style draws you in, but it’s the amplification of marginalized voices in her bright, powerful works that gives you something to take away.
An activist, feminist, and one of the most recognized outlaw artists in North America, MissMe’s unapologetic pieces command attention in sharp tones, exploring her own struggles with race, gender, society, and class while uplifting icons of the past. Her compelling, elegant, and sometimes unsettling large-scale wheatpastes swallow buildings whole, confronting issues of dignity and forcing us to reconsider our own truths.
Rarely in any city for more than a few months at a time, the Artful Vandal has channeled the momentum of her art’s global success toward a new movement, passionately advocating for women as role models and pivotal members of their communities.
