Tatyana Fazlalizadeh: When the Lion Roars Back, a small overview

We’re excited because today we get to spend a few minutes on stage with one of our hometown heroes, the artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. Leveraging her artistry with her politics with her desire to support women and others who are harassed, its a special kind of gold that she creates.

By putting these images of people of color, women, LGBTQ+ folks on the street with their blunt-force sentiments addressed to would-be harassers, she not only stands with them, but Tatyana has also used her work and vision to give them the courage to stand proud, assert their voice and to take public space.

After all, it belongs to the public.

More info about the artist and event;
Women are not outside for your entertainment”, a startling truth for some guys that pointedly highlights abusive behavior toward women on the streets of Brooklyn and many cities around the world. Brooklyn Street Artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh has been targeting daily oppressive experiences of marginalized people with her campaigns of art on the streets – and in the gallery.
Addressing themes of social justice, racism, LGBTQ+ rights, and sexist street harassment, her beautifully drawn campaigns on wheat-pasted posters and painted murals across the globe have brought attention to issues sorely in need of addressing during hostile rhetoric from some men in the highest offices.
Profiled in major media from The New York Times, NPR and Time Magazine and asked to speak at universities and museums like the Smithsonian, the New School and the Brooklyn Museum, Tatyana’s work can currently be seen on Spike Lee’s Netflix series, She’s Gotta Have It.

Come join Tatyana as she shares her experiences, observations and perspectives with Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo from Brooklyn Street Art in this riveting discussion on Street Art as change-making activism.
