KASHINK is one of the few international women artists that are very active in urban art, she lives in Paris. Her work is questioning aesthetic codes, the definition of identity. Whether in celebration of diversity or as a confrontation to social norms, KASHINK considers herself an activist. Since 2013, she’s been wearing a pencil-on mustache as her daily makeup. She considers it statement as well as a sociological experiment, creating random conversations with strangers about beauty, gender, norms, and freedom. The artist likes the idea of a constant performance, painting huge murals or experimenting with face paint, which she’s been developing as an incarnation of the characters she’s been painting on walls for the past 12 years.
