When Lady Pink grew up in Queens, New York she was a shy and quiet kid, but everything changed when she started to write graffiti. In the late 1970´s and beginning of 1980´s she was painting trains in NYC and had to toughen up fast when risking her life or being arrested by the police. She was the first female to break into the male-dominated graffiti scene and has been referred to as ”the first lady in graffiti”. After starring in the cult movie Wild Style she gained recognition all around the world and became a renowned fine artist. Today she looks back at the years of vandalism as the ”university for most of us all”.
