Chalk and pavement artists are often overlooked when discussing street art. How this came about we just don’t know especially since the current batch of artists are producing such high quality artwork. Valentina is one of the artists pushing this form to international audiences. Her beautiful colourful piece brought great energy to the Malta Street Art Festival. Which along with the other female artists at the festival ensured balance to whats normally regarded a male dominant format. Italian artist Valentina and other amazing female artists are changing the very face of street art and bringing the format into the twenty first century.
