For our first artist spotlight of the year, we want to highlight @swoonhq
. Swoon is a street artist who started wheat pasting while she was working towards her B.A. in Fine Arts from Pratt institute in Brooklyn. At the time, she wanted to remain anonymous, rarely ever signing her name to pieces done on the street. As she progressed in the street art world and gained more notoriety, her pieces grew and grew in size as well. Swoon utilizes wheat pastes to spread her hand-designed portraits through the streets, emphasizing the geometries of urban and natural life, and imparting a message of female empowerment. Go check out her show at @jeffreydeitchgallery
in New York. We are excited to see where this artist goes in the future.
