The Amazing Musa 71

Musa 71 Aka Maria:

IMG_8798

One thing that really stands out about Musa are how large her pieces are among other things. We love how detailed and multi-colored her pieces are with such great connections!! Musa is an huge inspiration to us, we know you’ll love her work too!

Before you started painting graffiti, did you have any other creative outlets?

Yes, when I was a child I used to watch scifi and horror movies. Also I used to read a lot comic books and a lot of books in general. So when I was a teenager I began to write short stories. And I’m still doing it.

Tell us, what is it like being a female graffiti writer? How was it when you first started?

musa71_holavictor

Well, at the beggining it was hard for several things. First there were only two or three girls interested in, so we didnt know what to do or act.. I dont know if it is easy to understand. Then male writers, they dont know how to act towards us. Some of them were very paternalist ( sorry dont know if this word is correct) and the rest were very machista.
But, after some years they realize that I really love graffiti so everything got comfortable.

So, love the crew name “Black Magic” -tell us more about the crew and its meaning?

Well, Black Magic is spanish crew. We are friends that more or less share the same mentality about graffiti. Was created by Hen (Barcelona). Black magic is a strong name that reflect the way we feel about graffiti.

Where did you originally start writing graffiti?

I began doing tags, simple latex pieces in Barcelona, but I did my first color piece in Madrid.

P1110223

Where are you from?
Barcelona. S-pain.

What would you say you base your style on? Where do you get inspiration from?

Obviously ny classic styles and music. I love to draw while listening music and i like to think that my letters dance to the music i was listening to.

How many years have you been painting?
I began at 1989… 24 years :S

Why Musa 71?

Well the number is easy I was born 1971. When I decided to write I was looking for a name that means something in spanish and english. My bf at that moment help me out with this.

P1110486

Who are some female writers that are currently active in Spain?
Noer, Labil, Laia, Fati, Mali, Risa, Dune, Yubia… And many more..
