A few more murals either spring up for real, or else I finally stumble on them.

This one from Main and Broadway, clearly in progress. Note the small mural, the ugly graffiti, bicycle, ladder and the Pattison billboard advertising the festival.

The artist is Kashink, from Paris.


From Kashink’s web site:   KASHINK is one of the few very active female artists in the French graffiti/street art scene.   She lives in Paris, France, and has travelled a lot throughout the world, getting inspiration from many different cultures.   She paints huge four eyed characters, with thick lines, vivid colors, in a very distinctive style.

KASHINK is a surprising person: as most female painters represent female figures, she only paints men, preferably fat and hairy, looking like badass yet sensitive gangsters, alien-looking ogers, or shamans from ancient tribes. Some of them are gay, some of them are killers, some others are both.

She’s provocative, creative, constantly challenging. She wears a mustache.
