Femme Fierce, the largest all-female street art event in the UK is dedicated to unearthing and highlighting the best of the burgeoning female artists on the street art scene. Coinciding with International Women’s Week, Femme Fierce is a celebration of women that create art in studios, lurk in dark alleyways, scale roof tops, enter abandoned buildings and add colour to the grey concrete walls that make up our cityscape for the love of the covert and oft-maligned world of street art and graffiti.
Spanning across 7 days, London based Femme Fierce, kick starts the series of events with the official opening night party on Friday March 7th. Consisting of the largest street art group show of its kind, Femme Fierce is introducing a series of new works by both British and UK based international female street artists and graffiti writers Amara Por Dios, Ashes57, BoxHead, Artista, Zina, Thieu and Girls on Top and is curated by The Street Art Agency and Earth Tone Arts at Cre8 Gallery.
