Graffiti artist Ouch leaves her mark on New Zealand

Big Walls by Ouch and Peap, Auckaland, New Zealand

Ouch is a 23 year old artist from New Zealand who has been creating graffiti murals since she was a teenager with the help of the TNC crew. In this interview on Fatcap.com Ouch provides a clear, simple description of why she makes graffiti:

To me graffiti is art that speaks to the youth first and foremost, it’s innovative, and raw, and a mark of the unkown that represents real life in a city. I see graffiti as something very valuable and misunderstood, something that is both hated and loved, and something that has a life of its own. I love the freedom you get from doing graffiti, sure people in the graffiti word might try to impose rules on you, but when it comes down to it, there are no rules when youre out painting, after being told in art school; what to draw, how to draw, when to draw, graffiti became a way for me to vent, and feel free.

Although I doubt I’ll get to see these art works anytime soon, I hope Ouch keeps painting.
