Maverique Style House Salon Mural

P1060796

Maverique Style House wall commissioned by Tattoo Artist Jenn Ponci, and Few and Far Founder Meme. The wall is located in Midtown Sacramento, California on 19th and I streets. The owners of the salon, Shannon and Michael, gave the ladies complete freedom to involve artists of their choice. Artist Ursula X. Young, Graffiti writer Miss Reds, and tattoo artist Beth Emmerich, were chosen to participate in this project. Ursula X. Young hand painted a beautiful framed woman in the middle of the mural. Miss Reds designed and spray painted all the lettering, as well as painted butterflies and flowers. Beth contributed the flowing peacock feathers between the frames. Jenn Ponci painted the woman with the fancy hat, and the dapper gentleman characters, as well as background designs. Meme painted orchids, pansies, and a bird that brought everything all together to complete the vintage-salon themed wall.

To accommodate the salon’s busy schedule and parking restrictions, the ladies painted many late nights using their spotlights in down to 22 degree weather. Working against the porous rough texture and large groves all over the brick wall. The salon stylists and employees were gracious and helpful throughout the process, offering beverages and access to their facilities when needed. This mural was enjoyable and rewarding for the ladies involved, and they extend their gratitude to Maverique Style House.

Jessica N. Pabón TEDxWomen

Jessica N. Pabón is ABD in the Performance Studies Department at New York University and specializes in Transnational Feminisms, Latina/o and Africana Studies, Queer Studies, and Visual Art and Performance. Recognized by the American Association of University Women (American Fellowship) and the Ford Foundation (Honorable Mention), her dissertation, The ‘Art of Getting Ovaries’: Female Graffiti Artists and the Politics of Presence in Hip Hop’s Graffiti Subculture, breaks scholarly ground in the study of graffiti subculture by analyzing the modes of resistance female graffiti artists cultivate to manage the material effects of being women in a male-dominated subculture. She documents the lives of over seventy-five women who spend their days as biologists, CEOs, editors, mothers, and teachers, and their nights painting on the streets of cities like Cape Town, León, Melbourne, New York City, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, Shizuoka, and Toronto. Formerly the Director of US Relations for Rede Nami, a Brazilian feminist urban arts collective, she continues her advocacy work as curator for bOb gallery in NYC. She has publications forthcoming in Women & Performance: a journal of feminist theory, Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge, and TDR: the journal of performance studies. She blogs about her research at http://artofgettingovaries.wordpress.com.
