This woman is a lot rougher and more quickly done compared to the others I've seen. It was a quick doodle but this artist decided to put fangs in the girls mouth while she still looks seemingly innocent. This could be to show that woman have a more dangerous or mysterious side to them. Her big eyes make her seem very innocent.
This street art is not graffiti or spray paint, but a sticker that was placed onto this door en El Born. While the girl is nude and wearing knee high pink socks, there is something seemingly innocent about her face. It may be the fact that it is extremely cartoonish. Most woman are still represented and portrayed in this manner of someone sexual.
This is unlike most of the street art I have seen portraying woman, where she seems like an "average" day to day woman I would see walking down the street. She has her glasses on, and hair up, against a bright and colorful background with a hopeful glint in her eye and smirk. This seems to be empowering and endearing, a reminder that woman are happy and can put their minds to anything they want.
This street art is Marylin Monroe, who was a huge sex symbol. While we can not see her body here, the artist decided to make the picture fully black and white except for her red lips. accentuating them and making it more seductive. Even though she was a seemingly American icon, she has passed geographic boundaries and is known all over the European world.
This portrays a woman getting her makeup done. There is an elaborate design around her face. All or a huge majority of the woman portrayed in street art are beautiful, with sharp and clear faces. This goes one step beyond alluding to the process woman go through everyday to look presentable for society.
Another, older work from Btoy, this is unlike more of the work I have seen from her. Here the woman is a flapper from the 1920s, with a colorful feather headdress painted on top. While the woman herself does not seem to be happy or even that beautiful, the headdress and her role as a flapper is supposed to symbolize empowerment.
These two girls seem to be sisters, posing and have a seemingly close relationship. There is not a lot of detail but the pink shading makes them seem youthful and innocent, and nice contrast to some of the darker or more seductive portrayals of woman in street art. This could also highlight the bond that woman share with each other.
This is another work done by Btoy, and one of the first I saw with a tag from her. This woman seems to be really happy and confident, smiling large with a lot of jewelry and bright colors. It is a sharp contrast to the darker and dirty background. The NBC microphone makes me think that she might be someone well known, however I do not recognize her.
I found this picture from a photoblog online about Barcelona street art, it was taken a few years ago. I find this piece to be extremely interesting because it is one of the first times I am seeing a woman in street art that is not white. While she is painted in shades of blue and green, it is apparent that she is of some Muslim descent due to her head scarf. The color and the furrow in her brow suggests that she seems to be concerned or worried.
This woman seems to be slightly confused, surprised, or dazed by the wide look in her eyes and her hands on top of her head. She is very pretty, with fine features she seems to take up this metal wall she was on. Next to her, is the figure with the shirt "art is trash," making her stand out as one of the clearest, and cleanest figures on the whole facade. She is also looking at the viewer.
