Swoon is one of the most influential wheat-pasters in street art. Her life size wood block printed portraits have influenced a slew of other prominent street artists including Gaia, Imminent Disaster, and Elbowtoe. Not only are these detailed posters visually stunning, but what makes her work particularly special is that she plays off the ephemerality of the medium. As her delicate paper cuts whither and decay, they take on new beauty.
