“SHE SLAPS!” featured artist: Fymsa (Russia)

Please provide a brief description of your work. The main point of my sticker art, in general, is proving my existence. It’s like the goal of my art. But all my characters are women and it is a very important manifestation of my feelings about my own sex and gender and its place in the world. Does being a female artist, or identifying as a female artist, influence your work, and if so, how? It influences from the inside, not like something specially planned. I’m proud to create cool female characters, it’s good to be close to your characters in…

“SHE SLAPS!” featured artist: Orble (Germany)

Please provide a brief description of your work. Orbles are turquoise creatures based on a cat, I grew up with. Originally named Max, me and my brother created silly names for him all the time ( things like “Worble,” “Reble,” “Knorble”) until the Nickname Orble was born in the early 90s. I always drew him as a kid and 15 years later on a party, my brother asked me to draw the” fat cat “again. I promised that I still can do it..even drunk and with closed eyes. The wobbly creatures that came out of this experiment cracked us all…

“SHE SLAPS!” featured artist: StickermaidBerlin (Germany)

Please provide a brief description of your work. I love to bring characters into the world which have a distinct personality and whose faces reflect their inner feelings. According to the shown feelings I carefully choose them and put them next to other artists stickers, paste-ups, stencils or graffiti in order to react to them. Often I also interact with advertising posters or the surroundings. It’s great fun and only the interaction makes my art complete and satisfying. Does being a female artist, or identifying as a female artist, influence your work, and if so, how? I’ve brooded a long…

“SHE SLAPS!” featured artist: Art.Omato (Germany)

Please provide a brief description of your work. I create black and white drawings around words and signs and sometimes add a message. All my friendly Freaks, love and peace pictures developed that way. The art.omato heads came up by stenciling my own motives. I took them for joining the great #nohatemovement from the Cologne artists. Does being a female artist, or identifying as a female artist, influence your work, and if so, how? Yes, l think it does. We still have to fight for equality, love and peace in any direction! Sticking on the streets is a protest and…

“SHE SLAPS!” featured artist: Metraeda (Germany)

Please provide a brief description of your work. I came in contact with street art through friends. My motivation are the community approach, the idea of being creative, working together and inspiring each other on the one hand as well as making the whole world a little more colorful on the other hand. Furthermore, street art is a good way to distribute messages, such as “say no to racism!”. The name Metraeda is a mixture of Tetraeder (a triangular pyramid) and geometry because I only use geometrical forms, mostly triangles, to build my artworks. Each artwork is placed carefully to…

“SHE SLAPS!” featured artist: Balo (Slovenia)

Please provide a brief description of your work. Funky with a kick! Does being a female artist or identifying as a female artist influence your work and if so how? In the beginning it took much more work to get credit, but when the respect is gained it never goes away. What’s the best thing about being a female artist in the sticker world? That you can stay incognito forever and you can use any colour you please. Is there anything else you’d like to share? Keep on slappin! Special thanks to Oliver Baudach, Hatch Kingdom, Berlin, Germany, for his…

“SHE SLAPS!” featured artist: Susi Possnitz (Austria)

Please provide a brief description of your work. The subject of the sticker is a smiling used sanitary tampon, digitally drawn with quick and rough brushstrokes and colored in a simple and flat manner. Does being a female artist, or identifying as a female artist, influence your work, and if so, how? Yes, it does. Some of my works focus on gender related topics, like an editorial design for an brochure with tips and action steps against gender-mainstreaming or an explanatory card game about menstruation. All of those projects include my personal experience and are based on my perception of…

“SHE SLAPS!” featured artist: Allison Tanenhaus (USA)

Please provide a brief description of your work. I create colorful stickers based on my beloved cats, my glitch art, and my street-art tag, WHAT. The goal is to create connection and community in public spaces, where signage is typically geared towards commercial enterprises (advertisements, store signs, logos on clothing and cars). Putting out aesthetically appealing, self-expressive works amidst the hubbub lets genuine artists stake a claim out in the world, and fosters inquiry and attention to details that are all around us. I love to put my work amongst other sticker art, creating a collective destination that honors the…

Featured artist: Sherebel (Albania)

Ada Reso, one of the artists that I met recently from the Slavers of NY sticker project, was in Albania earlier this year and sent me some political stickers from an artist there who goes by the name “Sherebel.” I reached out to see if Sherebel and I could meet on Zoom so she could tell me more about her work. First, here is the bio she sent me. Artist biography Livia Tice, aka „Sherebel“ (art & street name), is a 22 year old genderfluid & queer identifying person from Tirana, Albania. She is a writer, a slam poet, a…
