Kashink is one of the few very active female artists in the French graffiti/street art scene. She lives in Paris, France and has traveled 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 bad ass yet sensitive gangsters, alien-looking ogers, or shamans from ancient 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. Her work has been shown in galleries in many European countries (France, Switzerland, UK, Italy) and also in Canada and California.
