Cut out a stencil based on my research and make street art promoting the idea of feminism.
My design consists of a woman with a short haircut and simple features, next to her the symbol for feminism, and below her the phrase "we are equal." For the final product, I started with the background color pink and outlined the black images with white paint.
I created my image on Adobe Photoshop and printed it on a large piece of paper. I then used an Exacto blade to cut out the shaded parts of my stencil. Finally, I finished the paper with an adhesive so that it would be durable enough to be used multiple times.
I exhibited my product at a street art gallery in DownTown San Diego. I sprayed my design on a wall here, as well as on a wooden block so that it could be displayed at my school.
I feel my art piece will influence it's viewers in more ways that one. It has been proven time and time again that political street art isn't vandalism, it's a platform for artists and underprivileged communities to communicate. I hope to give a voice to these communities, and I will continue to make products that make the viewer reconsider their own moral compass.
