We’ve mentioned this street art before when it popped up in Philly, although I didn’t know then who was behind it. According to NPR, these anti-street harassment posters are the work of artist Tatayana Fazlalizadeh who’s been dodging cops in the cover of darkness to put them up in her neighborhood in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
Fazlalizadeh says the frequent cat calls she receives inspired her. ”It happens almost daily to me,” she says, “so I wanted to express myself and speak up for myself.”
