Art Vandals

The O.D. Gallery cordially invites you to the exhibition Art Vandals

Street art is an art form dominated by men. The O.D. Gallery thinks it’s time to show that there are also female street art artists. On 28 March, we open the duo exhibition Art Vandals, with work by the Canadian artists MissMe and Pony. In a very different visual language, the two artists convey a corresponding message about the position of women in society.
