Title: Untitled Street Art 13

Artist: Andrea Michaelsson (street name bToy)

Created: France 2013

Display Location: Paris, France


Andrea Michaelsson, known as bToy in the art world, studied law for four years before deciding that it wasn’t for her. She switched to painting when she found that it relieved her stress. BToy took inspiration in her art first from flapper women, such as Clara Bow. These flappers are examples of empowered women. Many of the women BToy depicts are female icons of the 1950s, just like the nurse in this painting.

 Aurora showcases the never-ending, always-changing power of art and its ability to influence generations across time. The portraits in Aurora, by local photographers Ike and Tash, feature 19 young people from all over the South Sound. These portraits highlight youth as the subjects of remixed and reimagined versions of well-known works of art. The show empowers youth to see themselves in new ways and inspires young people to connect with works of art from other times and places.

Awakening. Genesis. Creation.
