During our daily peruse of the web for all news art related we were thrilled to come across this blog, on none other than The Huffington Post, covering “25 Women Pushing The Limits Of Street Art Around The World”. Ranked amongst them at number 15 was Ink’d gallery favourite Lady Aiko.
Included in the list were other fantastic female street artists from around the globe including wheat paste maestro Swoon, master colour muralist Maya Hayuk and UK based Miss Hazard. Also included in the list was one of Lady Aiko’s own influences and fellow New Yorker Lady Pink. Lady Pink is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential women to emerge from the burgeoning graffiti scene of the 1980s, starring as the main role in the era defining film ‘Wild Style’.
Last months hit exhibition ‘Edo City Girl’ saw Lady Aiko gain legions of new fans in Brighton with her fantastimc densely layered and colourful stencilled canvases. Whilst in town she also manage to paint a huge mural in a tunnel by Bartholomew Square and take part in a live Q and A for the annual costume games.
We would like to say a huge well done to Lady Aiko for her recognition as one of the women pushing street art to the next level.
