Few & Far 5th Year Anniversary Block Party

June 4th, 2016 held significance and was a major milestone for Few and Far. Five years ago on that date – Meme, Founder of Few and Far, organized a massive mural project in Oakland and pulled together a group of women from all over the United States. Since then, members of Few and Far have created numerous murals across the globe, building with and empowering communities worldwide. Our collective is now comprised of 17 talented female artists that include women from Nepal to Ecuador. Every year the group gets together to celebrate that anniversary, and their hard work and achievements by creating large scale murals in different communities.

This June 4th weekend, the mural took place in Sacramento, in the alley of 24th and S streets in midtown. The Few and Far ladies were joined by10-15 other female artists from different cities and states, roughly totaling 22 muralists who painted all weekend. It was kicked off by a neighborhood block party featuring local vendors, Dj’s, and live mural painting which took place on a sizzling hot Saturday in June and was well attended by the community and neighbors. This was the 3rd Few and Far organized mural on this wall. img_3107

Meeting Of Styles San Francisco 2015

Few and Far were recently invited to take part in the San Francisco Meeting of Styles, a weekend of international graffiti and street art which took place over four blocks in the Mission district of San Francisco. Spanning the alleys of Osage and Lilac from 24th-26th streets, hundreds gathered to give the alleys fresh paint. Representing Few and Far were Deity, Ursula X Young, Agana, Ksra, Dime & Meme who chose a 60’s psychedelic theme to give Osage and 25th some flower power, a nod to San Francisco’s colorful history.

Few and Far Art Basel Video

Few & Far at Art Basel, Dec. 2014 from AC_in_CA on Vimeo.

Art Basel is America's largest art fair, taking place annually each December in Miami, Florida, with thousands gathering from around the world to view the spectacle. Few and Far has gone out to paint a mural each year since its inception, and this one is their largest to date. At roughly 30' tall and over 90' wide, this wall was an amazing way for each of them to grow as artists and collectively show the world who they are: a crew of diversely talented female mural painters with a multitude of backgrounds, who work together to complete beautiful productions. Thanks for watching and see you next year!

Another amazing year of painting a huge mural with the women of Few and Far. This years theme was an electric underwater world, which we painted over 4 days during Art Basel: one of the worlds largest art events that happens over a week every December in Miami. Our wall was one of the largest all-female collaborations in the Wynwood district, with 16 Few and Far artists from various parts of the country and globe painting together on this mural.

2014 Few and Far Recap

Print

2014 for Few and Far has been unmistakably our most active and progressive year yet!!

This year we added two artist’s to our crew Kazilla located in Miami and Deity from Los Angeles. Our Few and Far family has risen to 20 women, our team includes skateboarders, painters and photographers.

As you may know we are an all-female based crew. We have made huge strides in our continued support for women and girls, helping to build independence while leading by example: that women can work together as a team and create a big impact throughout the graffiti and street art. We are proud to say our charity events have really uplifted us as a crew and as individual artists. Few and Far prides itself on inspiring young peoples lives as well as empowering all females to follow their dreams and goals no matter how challenging the obstacles might be.

Skateboarding has also been a focus for us this year and we have five Few and Far women that are active skaters. We have been a part of several all-girl skate events over the last 3 years. We will be holding another skate event this summer in Northern California – stay tuned about updates about that event.

2015 Few and Far is focused on spreading our art and charity work further afield, to more corners of the United States and all across the world. We hope to continue to make a difference in people lives world wide with our art and youth events.

We will also be looking for a few more women and girls to add to our hard working team of talented women.
We appreciate your support over the years! We are motivated by the outpouring of positive feed we have received by fans and supporters from around the world and now Few and Far Thanks You from the bottom of our hearts!! – Few and Far

#Sleepless in Seattle


Here is a montage of images from our mini North West tour that happened in honor of our 3rd anniversary party held in Seattle at the Bombsheller Gallery. More Here

On this beautiful sunny Seattle afternoon, participating artists… 179, Merlot, Meme, Dime, Deity, Ksra, Erin Ashford and Jenn Ponci all came together and painted a mural at Mudbay finishing within 3 hours followed by a celebration dinner and drinks.Some of the girls hadn’t seen each other for over a year! The next day the girls took Meme to a skater-built skatepark under a bridge in an industrial area of the city.

The next activity filled day had us meeting with female street-artist No Bonzo</em> from Portland, OR. Enjoying a walk in the beautiful nature of the Pacific Northwest, we followed a daisy lined trail to a hidden wall where we painted.

That night it rained heavily, but we didn’t let that spoil our nighttime fun. We did a Few and Far spellout on this trackside. photo

In the morning it was all about preparing for our 3rd Anniversary art show later that evening. Our nails were done by MaryJane Cha at TopCoat. We also had our hair styled and make-up done.

After a crazy night of festivities we opened our crusty eyes still wearing last nights makeup and our hair glued in the same position it was slept on. We began the journey to Canada, hoping nothing would stop us from getting into Vancouver. It worked! Our friends from the North, SONE, ENSOE, THEME, took us to paint. But really we cracked clam jokes, laughing for hours, inspired by the use of clam juice in the Bloody Mary’s.

Day 2: In Canada found us painting under a bridge, without much opportunity for good photos, but you get the idea.

On the World Wide GO SKATE DAY, Sone took us girls to paint and skate at his local skate park. It was a beautiful place surrounded by bright green trees. We had a great time painting and headed home.
