Culture, Specials
Celebrating International Women's Day with a weekend of female-powered creativity, Femme Fierce, the UK's largest female street art and graffiti festival returned to the Banksy Tunnel beneath Waterloo station. Reporter: Jipsa George Sub-editor: Di Bai Both male and female artists from all around London gathered at the infamous tunnel at Leake Street to showcase different types of art forms. According to Catfight magazine: "Graffiti, guerrilla art and urban activism still convey a stereotypically tough male image, but they are beginning to have other faces." But that did not stop the female graffiti artists to take it to the streets to make a statement. The event saw over 150 street artists spray paint and stencil large scale murals on the walls of the tunnel. Founder and editor
