11 Latinas Slaying the Muralist Art Scene in Latin America

Since Diego Rivera’s heyday, the muralismo game has mainly been dominated by men. It’s seldom that we hear of female artists painting the walls of Latin America – but they’re out there. We’ve compiled a list of some of the most badass Latina street artists in Latin America, ranging from Mexico to Colombia to Panama and beyond.

Originally from San Luis Potosí, Nuz first got her hands on a bottle of aerosol when she was only 19. Femininity is the focal point of her work, and her large-scale murals typically feature portraits of women.
