Anonymous Street Artist and Activist MissMe to Speak in Denver Next Week

Graffiti is frequently connected with vandalism, but sometimes an artist having a serious goal utilizes graffiti tactics to spread messages . That is certainly true with Montreal-based artist MissMe — dubbed by Vice within a “art vandal” — that creates pieces of art that she leaves in the streets using a technique. She arrived at Denver at September 2017 to set up epic posters in the Comal Heritage Food Incubator (a project that was strange since she had been asked to do it, instead of illegally gluing it )  Since That Time, she has continued her connection with the Mile High City through links in The Source Hotel and Zeppelin Station. This weekend, even MissMe will return to Denver once again. However, might sit in on an artist speak at Big Trouble on Monday, November 26 using all the famous — and concealed — street artist.

And that her point of view isn’t one to miss. Well-spoken, bright, passionate and ferocious, MissMe is the embodiment of empowerment on many levels. She creates pictures that talk to your marginalized, the restless, the discontented — and she pushes them at the face. She highlights and advocates role models, while she critiques the roles that women play in society, such as Instagram celebrities. Her wheatpastes are occasionally so large they engulf buildings to take notice, such as the ones that she installed at Comal. Those pictures were portrayals of powerful girls — Malala Yousafzai, Frida Kahlo, Simone de Beauvoir, Maya Angelou — and their giant dimensions represented MissMe’s understanding of their effects on history.

Among the most aspects of MissMe’s livelihood, to some people , is her continuing insistence to place her art . In the interview 303 Magazine ran with her final year, she clarified, “I believe it’s most important to keep a balance in society by doing something illegal that isn’t always harmful. But greater than this, there’s something beautiful about using your own time and money to share something only. People pick up that because it & rsquo; s the opposite of everything — it & rsquo; s the opposite of needing to earn money only doing it to the idea and message and know. That’s strong, strong energy that people share and join through. ”

And there is undeniably a feeling of immediacy that includes MissMe’s guerrilla tactics. A person doesn’t need to go to boutique that is small, museum or a gallery to encounter her art — and the folks she wants to impress upon the most probably aren’t going to those types of places. Her art is in-your-face unapologetic, strong and captivating — and so is she.

Ahead of the artist speak on Saturday, November 24 and Sunday, November 25, The Source Hotel will sponsor a pop-up comprising a number of MissMe’s non-street art. MissMe’s celebrity talk is being co-hosted from the Denver organization Safeword, a team focused on media events for creative women. This falls in line with MissMe’s inclination to uplift women all over the world.

The event will occur on November 26 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Big Trouble at Zeppelin Station and will be totally free to attend. MissMe will market exclusive prints of some of her work for this night only.
