We continue our series of stories on graffiti women for the GraFEM blog with a legendary writer! Vixen is known to anyone who has ever seen her plump green birds or rounded pink ponies on walls around the world. She came late to graffiti, doing her first ones at the age of twenty. Under the crew name Pony Mafia, she and fellow graffiti artist Ovca (the name translates as the Sheep) left their mark on many towns in Slovenia and other countries. She was the first Slovenian graffiti woman to turn her hand to trains. When she first started, she didn’t know any other female graffiti artists, so she had to learn as much as possible on her own. Spray painting gave her confidence and taught her perseverance and discipline. Her story can be read here: Vixen aka Pony, the first Slovenian Graffiti woman to turn her hand to trains.
