UNIFORM | Lady Pink


Photo of early graffiti artist Lady Pink (a.k.a. Sandra Fabara) in the early 1980s via Few and Far, thanks to a suggestion from Rose Della Rosa.

"The more they told me: you're a girl, you can't paint graffiti, you can't go to subways, because you're a girl, you're a mere female; I had to stand up and just shut them up." —Lady Pink

Whitney Museum canvas tote by Shabd ($120); Montana spray cans; RVCA ANP hat ($20); Goldrush jean jacket ($118); Jenny Holzer "Abuse of Power Comes As No Surprise" from the series Truisms T-shirts (at the MoMA collection).

Have you (or has anybody) ever found an "Abuse of Power" tee available for purchase? I have looked since I stumbled on her work a few years ago... but I have had no success!!!

I didn't find anything retailing either when I was working on this post.

A good companion is the book, Subway Art, 25th Anniversary Edition.

Blast from the past! Lady Pink was such an inspiration way back when I donned the spray cans!
