Women in Public Art We Love

There’s no doubt the city of angels has never looked more colorful. It seems Los Angeles is experiencing a mural resurgence amid a bourgeoning skyline and extensive expansions. Painting the town with unapologetic brush and aerosol strokes, a mural has the power to stop onlookers in their tracks and command attention.

The results are stunning, but mural painting, at times, is no easy feat. Behind these radiant murals are equally brazen female artists who take it all on for the opportunity to spread their talents and message, captivating the city with game changing concrete canvases.

Every artist has a purpose for creating and displaying their work publicly. For example, Davia King, muralist, describes her art as “a cross between visual and performance art.”

The following is a narrow consensus of fierce female muralists working in a variety of styles throughout Los Angeles.

We encourage you to explore these ladies’ exquisite artistry online and in person!
