"Beetle Witch" Dedicated with Love to the rebirth of all women and their spirit, for not letting themselves be erased by misogyny ❤️!! We return with our voices stronger every time!
Me and my magical sister @shalakattack painted this "Beetle Witch" mural in October 2017, for all the BRUXAS enchanting this world with love dignity and truth, for all those who work to put an end to gender based violence. NI UNA MENOS! NOT ONE MORE MURDERED OR MISSING! For all of our voices united against Violence against Women Everywhere.
This wall has its history, starting 5 years ago with the Two Bruxas (ode to the Two Fridas), which was later tagged by a misogynist promoting the rape of women. We then painted the "Angry Witches" to cast a spell of empowerment for young girls and women everywhere. Earlier in 2017 a vigil was held at our Angry Witches mural for the 40 young women who were victims of gender based violence and perished in a deadly fire at a children's shelter in Guatemala (It was International Woman's day and these young women were protesting the awful conditions & abuses they were experiencing at this shelter. They were locked up and left to die, burning alive). It was an honor to have the vigil held at this mural.
Later, this summer, the "Angry Witches" mural had its faces and our signatures blacked out, no tag, just blacked out. So we returned with our latest creation "Beetle Witch" dedicated to the rebirth of women spirit in all directions.
May the veil of complicity be lifted, the privilege of silence be unmasked, may our voices continue to grow stronger, and may those who inflict violence and silence heal their insecurities.
