The grafﬁti world isn’t just an old boys club. These are the female taggers making a statement and a name for themselves.

The Hong Kong-based artist’scurvaceous Jeliboo characteris more than just a cutesy cartoon doing yoga poses. Describing it as embodying “whispers of hip-hop”, her work calls into question body image issues and challenges archaic female stereotypes.
You’ll know this Czech grafﬁti artist’s work well. She appeared in Reebok’s “Always Classic” campaign andredesigned its timeless Club C sneakers. She’s also behind Girl Power, a documentary about 15 international female grafﬁti artists that toured ﬁlm festivals all over the world.
ANNA LAURINI (@ANNALAURINIBLUE)
Milan-born Laurini made waves in the grafﬁti scene when she started painting ﬁve years ago. Her signature Picasso and Matisse-inspired artwork (it ﬁrst appeared in the alleys of East London) has since led to collaborations with British shoe brand Rupert Sanderson and Japanese label Black by Moussy.
Working as part of a duo (withMuhammad Firdaus as StudioMoonchild), the Singapore based artist’s cutesy-meet-sci ﬁ characters have a modernGrimes edge. Their work can be seen all over Singapore, fromAliwal Arts Centre to *Scape,and soon in a cafe along Upper Thomson Road.
