    • 15. Swoon “At first I was so wound up about being a woman in a man's field that I didn't want to talk about it at all. I was making art out on the street, and no one knew I was a woman for at least a year, maybe three. “
    • 16. Swoon is a NYC based artist who has caught the eye of the world with her beautiful wheatpaste prints and cutout paper depictions of everyday street scenes. Her life-size pieces, often of her friends, family and neighbors, interact with their urban environment so well it often seems the city streets would not be complete without them.
    • 17. Swoon (1977- ) “When I first began to do street work, part of my impulse had to do with those things that are meant to disappear and the ability to just let things go. I use recycled newsprint that I order in 90-pound rolls. It’s extremely thin and is one of my favorite papers to use because of the way it decays. It yellows. It cracks. It has this whole life cycle that I really like.”
