KASHINK

SEPTEMBER FEATURED ARTIST

Kashink is one of few active female graffiti/ street artists in Paris where she lives and works.

An extensive traveler, she is inspired many different cultures with ideas that get quickly transformed into the arsenal of her growing artist toolkit.

Her work is a celebration of humanity’s diversity, executed in a distinctive style featuring huge four-eyed characters articulated in a masterful use of thick lines and vivid color.

Kashink’s unique perspective as a female painter is different from most, she only paints men, preferably fat and hairy. She’s provocative, creative and constantly challenging — conjuring a mustache-wearing persona as part of her daily make up.

From an artistic viewpoint, her inspirations are highly diverse — including luminaries such as Leigh Bowery, Gilbert and George, Keith Haring, Frida Kahlo and Fernando Botero.

Her work has graced walls and been exhibited in galleries throughout Europe, Canada and the United States.

In 2013, she was part of Women on the Walls, a show curated by Jeffrey Deitch in Miami during Art Basel.

Her project 50 cakes of gay  — in support of equal rights — includes painting more than 250 gay wedding cakes in 9 different countries to date.

In 2014, Kashink painted super-sized murals and exhibited her work in Montréal, New York, Paris, and Miami again.

The Huffington Post named her as first in a list of  10 women street artists who are better than Banksy in September 2014.
