0754543 Female Graffiti Artists

  1. 2. Female Graffiti Artists and the Controversial Question The female graffiti artist scene started developing in the 1970’s by the help of women such as Barbara and Eva 62. It is because of many influential women like these that the female street art culture is alive in today’s modern society. A few of these women and their art will be introduced. As we know, the controversial question about graffiti goes as follows, is graffiti an art form or a crime? It is a question that many people have heard and either agreed, disagreed, or are indifferent about. My opinion is that graffiti is a valid form of artistic expression.
