In early 2016, four female Bay Area artists joined forces to create a unique and vivacious girl gang. We noticed the lack of representation of women artists in our scene, and sought to contribute to the culture. Our fledgling creation for this movement is a large scale mural, and we planned the groundwork in a East Oakland warehouse before traveling with our 5′ x 7′ canvas to Belden town for Emissions festival. Below is our mission statement for the project.
“We seek to illustrate the strength, connection, beauty and power of figures in motion – to connect with the viewer as they relate to the human body, and then transport and elevate them through abstract and mind-bending glitch aesthetics. We are inspired by cyberpunk aesthetics and the idea of thriving in a dystopia, in an age of technology and transhumanism. As a part of the artistic process, we captured photographic references of ourselves as we interact and relate as a group, altered them digitally, and are now translating the fluid dynamics of movement through repetition of forms. Our goal is to create a dynamic and empowering piece. We hope to inspire more young women artists to own their personal power, band together, and create art – and to confront and abolish fear of the dark, fear of the future, and fear of the unknown.”
