Badass Graffiti of Badass Chicks

Fin DAC is not your typical graffiti artist. He doesn’t freestyle it with paint cans and you won’t find him in the middle of the night wearing a backpack and a hoody. The London-based artist incorporates a paint/stencil style into making murals of, you guessed it, fierce, tatted-up women.  His subjects range from an atypical geisha with a revealing kimono to a topless, cigarette-smoking holster-toting Asian woman.  He calls his style “Urban Aesthetics — a modern-day take on a 19th century art movement” and further elaborates that “Some of us are now ‘sub-urban’ artists — we go beyond urban art into who knows what, pushing the accepted boundaries in our own way.” DAC’s works can be seen on facades of buildings from Miami to Berlin and he is also Artistic Director of Beautiful Crime where some of his signed and numbered illustrations are sold online.
