Fresthetic Artist Talk: Tatyana Fazlalizadeh
I talked with Fresthetic about my work, and the upcoming show Stop Telling Women to Smile.
Fresthetic does a lot of cool stuff, and I encourage people to also watch some of their other artist talks. (Especially Joshua Mays’. He’s so damn good.)
If you don’t know Tatyana Fazlalizadeh yet, watch this!
this will have to be a stand-in for my daily outfit post for 13 sept. (ootd #5) my first day in montreal + traveling meant I didn’t get any proper photos! I’m going to maybe illustrate what I wore in a drawing instead.
(note: as much as i dislike the “telling women to smile” attitude, i still really like this since i read it as gender neutral/nice street art instead of in your face misogyny)
antes y después…cuerpos sin patrones!
found this on the side of a house in halifax. go halifax.
Street Art of the Day: Above the streets of Quebec City, a My Little Pony mystery.
It seems that, over the past few weeks, an unidentified woman “dressed in black” has been running around “like a gazelle,” hanging MLP figures from power and telephone lines throughout the city’s central streets.
“The purpose of my project is to make people smile,” the anonymous pegasister told the Quebec City daily Le Soleil in an email interview. She vehemently denies any association with street gangs or prostitution rings, saying that she simply wants to bring some magic to her graying city.

YOU GUYS. wtf! my little ponies in québec city, first in le soleil on friday and now on the daily what! i am suffering MAJOR “i wish i had written about this before.” but i will put the “breaking the story” shit aside and just revel in the fact that people are learning about my city being badass.
(i’m still going to try and finish my blog post about it)
Theresa Himmer’s sequin street art
honestly sometimes i dream about making my city as sparkly and kitschy and queer as i want it to be. someone is already going around hanging my little ponies from electrical wires, now i just need some gigantic sequins. come to my city, theresa himmer!
this combines so many things that i love (bikes! street art! what looks like someone in a skirt riding a bike!)
