Her artistic name is the onomatopoeic word for the sound of action: KASHINK. And action you’ll get, mostly through huge paintings of four-eyed characters in gaudy colours that you can find all around the world. The work of this French artist is inspired by her Spanish and Slovakian origins, and often features portraits of Frida Kahlo mashed up with comics, which she loves.

She is an artist with attitude, too. Not only does she usually wear a painted mustache on her upper lip, but she’s socially conscious in her work. One of her latest collaborations was with Gayfitti called ‘Act Up’, a project that seeks equal rights for gay people.
