gilf! is a contemporary street artist living and working in Brooklyn New York. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison with a BFA in Fine Art and subsequently moved to Brooklyn. Recognized as a strong voice of the current street art scene in New York she has been included in various group shows throughout the country as well as multiple solo shows since her interior debut in 2010. Motivated by her outrage at our culture’s lack of response to the crumbling structures of society she choses to voice her disdain through spray paint and installation work. While recognizing that a positive voice is needed to create change she works to inspire her viewers while simultaneously causing them to take pause and consider the ramifications of our societal actions. A portion of the proceeds of her sold work goes to charities associated with each image. This allows the collector to take an active approach to facilitating change.
