There are very few female artists from Paris, or abroad for that matter, who are as well known and as active in the realm of urban art as Kashink.
Her work questions aesthetic codes and the definition of identity. Whether she’s celebrating diversity or dealing with social norms, Kashink has always considered herself to be an activist.
Since 2013, she has been penciling in a mustache every day, as a way to make a statement but also to spark dialogue with strangers about beauty, sex, norms and freedom.
Kashink likes the idea of a constant performance, whether she’s painting giant murals or experimenting with face paint, it’s a way for her to incarnate the characters she’s been painting on walls for 12 years.
