public_access_description
Miss Tic is a graffiti artist based in Paris. She is known for her stencil graffiti, often depicting fierce, beautiful women, with slogans or wordplays. She has been making street art since the early 1980s. Although she now sells her works as prints, and exhibits in commercial galleries, she continues to work in the urban environment at night. This particular image can also be seen sprayed onto dilapidated walls in Paris. This print shows a female figure, challenging the viewer with her gaze. The words ‘A Ma Zone’ can be understood as ‘in my zone’ or ‘amazon’. Both phrases can be read in the context of this image: the amazon marks her space, or zone, with her presence. Miss Tic’s feminine characters, based on herself, and her sometimes confessional phrases, make her an interesting exception in the male-dominated street art genre. Miss Tic’s work, although often very personal, also touches on feminist and political themes.
