Kashink “A female street artist with a mustache”

A mustache drawn over the lips and long chestnut hair attached, is the atypical style of Kashink, a very creative and engaged Parisian graffiti artist.
She’s by now one of the few very active female street artists in the graffiti and street art scene.

Women are still a minority in the field of street art. Among the best known: Vinie Graffiti, Jamin Aka Hera (Herakut), Miss Van, Lady Pink, Lady Aiko , Doudou’Style, Pearl, Swoon, Christina Angelina, Faith47, Julia Volchkova …
“Defying and defacing the system comes naturally to her”

She constantly defies the absurdity of aesthetic codes in her artistic expression but also in her daily life.
She developed an artistic concept called “funtivism”.
The four eyed characters Kashink paints on murals are humanoids whose gender and ethnicity are to be interpreted by each Viewer.

Her objective is to lead each spectator to question himself about stereotypes and vision of identity.
KASHINK’s artwork takes its inspiration from narrative figuration. Her characters will always be in situations where they’re confronting us in a fun yet  disturbing way, in reaction to her environment.

KASHINK’s messages on each of her artwork is strong !
For example, in reaction to the terrorist attacks in Paris, also with murals for Amnesty International’s « My Body My Rights » campaign , or with her “painted cakes” created in support of same sex marriage in response to France’s protests against it.

For those last few years, she also has been developing her artwork on films, photos …
Her work is exhibited in many international art galleries.
Kashink was also in the list of the 10 best female artist in the Huffington Post (2014) and also on Artnet.com (2016), a place totally deserved in terms of  quality and originality of her work.
Better than words, I let you discover her Art.
Enjoy !
