Feminist Street Art: "You Don't Need No Man"
Here is Sand One, a Guatemalan and Mexican street artist from East Los Angeles, California. Her artistic talents do not end on the walls -- she also designs t-shirts, leggings, and backpacks. She also calls herself a dreamer and she is a muralist.
Sand One focuses on making happy art, with a focus on womanhood and feminism.

"To me, a man is not important in my life. It has always been me by myself. In my art I try to show women that they don't need a man."

She says that in the Latino culture, parents do not typically embrace art as a business or a form of a success.
“They think of it as a hobby. My mom when I started she was like ‘why don’t you just go apply for McDonald’s or something?’ I was like ‘what?’ let me stab myself with a paintbrush! I really believe in my art. I believe that it’s a beautiful form that inspires other people.” (remezcla)
