Woman at work! Wonderfully gaudy French street art by KASHINK

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.

About the author

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
