New York City.- The Woodward Gallery is pleased to show “Lady Pink – Evolution”, on view at the gallery from November 5th through December 30th, with an artist reception on Saturday, November 5th from 6-8pm. Lady Pink is the first woman in graffiti based art.  In her current solo exhibition “Evolution,” Lady Pink re-masters work she once created as public murals. Lady Pink muses on old lettering outlines which have evolved from three decades of writing. To the cultured eye, Lady Pink’s street tag can be identified from the period in which it was deliberately constructed. The colorful POP- surreal canvases today, have her trademark name interwoven throughout the elaborate image, as if to authenticate her mark in art history. Lady Pink’s unique personal vision has been communicated throughout her evolution from subway writer to fine artist.
