STREET HEROINES

Trailer Here

Street Heroines is a documentary that celebrates female street artists who are transforming the urban environment in colorful ways. Whether visually protesting socio-political injustices or spreading messages of empathy, these women are using creativity to persevere social ignorance and find their own voices in the male-dominated world of graffiti and street art.

I began the project while living in São Paulo in 2011-2012 where the street art scene is overwhelming. My success in connecting with these artists comes from walking the streets of major cities and investigating by foot. My goal with this project, simply put, is to promote awareness about the flourishing global community of female street artists and encourage others to find their creative voice.
