KASHINK is one of the few very active female artists in the French graffiti/street art scene.
She lives in Paris, France, and has travelled a lot throughout the world, getting inspiration from many different cultures. She paints huge four eyed characters, with thick lines, vivid colors, in a very distinctive style. KASHINK is a surprising person: as most female painters represent female figures, she only paints men, preferably fat and hairy, looking like badass yet sensitive gangsters, alien-looking ogers, or shamans from ancien tribes. Some of them are gay, some of them are killers, some others are both. She’s provocative, creative, constantly challenging. She wears a mustache. Artistically speaking, her big inspirations are very diverse, such as Gilbert and George, Keith Haring, Frida Kahlo or Charles Burns.
