Girl Mobb x Oaklandish collection brings a female perspective to Oakland street style.
Girl Mobb creates challenging aggressive murals on broad social themes, such as the relationships among women, the state, and the natural environment. Her signature graphic style can be seen in her fine art pieces and in her public works projects, executed primarily with spray paint. Grim reapers, hot pink lips, tanks, recently a Lisa Simpson holding a spray paint can and studs are used symbolically and take up space in a cartoonishly fun graphic style.
Originally from Cincinnati, Girl Mobb made Oakland her home in 2008. Since then, she has contributed dozens of mural-scale public works locally and across the country. She holds a BFA in Painting from Academy of Art University, San Francisco.
Responding to the dearth of female perspectives in the current street arts scene, particularly among muralists and other public artists, in 2017 Girl Mobb founded Graffiti Camp for Girls, which provides a range of programming and mentoring experiences to build the confidence and skills in young women creating large-scale spray paint murals. Since its inception, she has led over two dozen camps and workshops in the Bay Area, across the country, and even internationally. Each camp culminates in a completed mural by its participants. Her vision is a world full of female perspectives and creations on the streets and in public spaces.
