|NYC Note, and her friend Minus|
Graffiti art is de facto legal in Wynwood, where there are more square feet of "permission-walls" in one compact area than almost any other city in the world. Property owners agree the art work is a positive addition to the neighborhood, and allow artists to express themselves out in the open in broad daylight. Without the fence jumping, cop dodging, back street, late night elements of illegal pieces, we saw more girls than ever doing street art this year. Here are just a few.
Note is from the Bronx. She says, "Painting doesn't matter what gender you are, but it's mad inspiring to see all these girls out here with such amazing talent. It really makes me want to take my work to the next level. There are more girls here painting this year than I've ever seen before. I'm 23. I started graffiti when I was like 13. My friends and uncles were doing it all my life, but when I started paying more attention to the streets, that's when I really got into it. I started doing tags on walls and making friends, and now I do it all the time. Wynwood has become like a real playground for writers."
