His works of political and social commentary have appeared on streets, walls, and bridges throughout the world.

His art finds the beauty in often overlooked textures of the urban environment such as posters, dirt, rust and peeled paint.

Her works are characterized by the use of hand cut, multi-layered stencils witch are applied by spray paint and gradually taking root in public and private spaces in and around Oslo.

Dubbed by Vice as Montreal’s Premier Art Vandal, MissMe has been busy wheatpasting, 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.
