Meet female artist Vegan Bunnies, a graffiti ilustrator, member of the HATELOVERS crew (Female power Graffiti Collective) who sees her activity as an expression for freedom and her ideology. Based in Barcelona, she travels often and communicates her emotions and principals asking for more empathy from the World.
– (ISSA) Introduce yourself to us!
(VB) I’ m vegan bunnies a girl from Peru living in Barcelona, loving graffiti and street interventions.
– What is Graffiti for you? What impact has it had in your life?
Graffiti is freedom for me, it gives me the power to do something i love. It is a really important part of my life it made me grown in a lot of different aspects of art and street interventions.
– How did the collective Thehatelovers arise and why?
It raised from the need of a group of girls , of friends to do support each other and to make people notice girls in different aspects like graffiti and others, a crew of girls that just want to be taken in the same way boys are taken.
– What is your main goal as a Collective?
To keep on with projects and show the work of wonderful women out there.
-Does Graffiti ought to be a social or a political activity?
It depends on the person.
– How can we be informed about your next actions?
– How do you think your role as a female artist has impacted this predominately male-dominated culture?
We all (girls) are making a difference and motivating more each other.
-How can we make the presence of women in Graffiti, more visible?
By supporting each other and showing that there is no difference in graffiti with a girl or a boy, we do the same thing, let’s forget about gender!
– Street art has had a big impact on society in the last few years. Many artists manage to get in the spotlight and try making a career out of it. What do you think about this evolution?
Well graffiti is a thing, and street art is another thing, yes i think it has been a door for many artists and for me it has always been a way out to my thoughts, feelings etc, so, if people recognized my work it was a nice feeling but in my case it was mainly interventions, that brought me some recognition, I was not looking for that, I just wanted to share a vegan, political and also emotional message.
About people or artists trying to get in the spotlight they are free and if they get what they look for I’m glad for them.
– What are you working on nowadays?
I’ve got two exhibitions, one in Colone, Germany and another one in Madrid, Spain. This is the way I can find support to keep on doing what i love , art , graffiti and street interventions.
– What are your plans for the future?
Hopefully travelling a lot, painting big walls and also sharing a vegan, feminist and political message.
– Do you have a wild project that you dream of achieving some day?
As i said paint a massive wall , a building if its posible.
-Is there a specific thought or message you would like to pass to our audience out there?
To keep on fighting for what they love and to grow compassion and empathy to others.
Thank you VB!
