Kashink is one of the last standing female artists in the French street art scene. The artist lives in Paris, France and is constantly getting inspired from different cultures and her travels. She is a female painter representing female figures but only paints male characters, using thick brush strokes, vivid colours and animated cartoon like features. We also forgot to mention she wears a penciled on moustache.
