BSA X ONO’U Festival 5 : Day 1 / Vinie In Papeete

Posted on June 6, 2018

This week BSA is checking out French Polynesia to get an appreciation for the Street Art, graffiti and street scene here while the 5th Annual ONO’U is taking place. Join in the tropical action while we take you to Tahiti, Raiatea, Bora Bora, and Moorea to see the artists and the action.


In France they kiss on Main Street, in San Francisco they wear flowers in their hair. Kiss on both cheeks in Tahiti and a Polynesian Lei atop your crown is appreciated any time of year, even now during the winter. Usually the crown is made of blossoms of tiare, hibiscus, and frangipani – but its up to you.

French native Vinie has incorporated existing espalier that have been trained to grow on walls into vast and complicated hair before, but the Paris graffiti painter is using her local research to populate the headspace taken by this voluminous coiffure.

Her figures are often female, their character capital. Here in Tahiti this new fresco cross pollinates a pin-up girl and hiphop goddess to daydream in a paradisiacal garden. Clearly here in Papeete, its all in the hair.
