Promotional flyer for a joint installation at Fashion Moda by legendary graffiti writers Lady Pink and Lady Heart, fellow alumnae of the High School of Art and Design and members of the legendary all-female graffiti crew Ladies of the Arts (LOTA) -- formed by Lady Pink when both artists were still in their teens. Lady Pink's work was first featured at Fashion Moda in 1980, as part of the landmark show "GAS: Graffiti Art Success." In 1983, the year of this installation, Pink (born Sandra Fabara) starred in both WILD STYLE and STYLE WARS, two defining films of graffiti and hip-hop culture, and would be featured in Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant's groundbreaking book SUBWAY ART in 1984. A scarce and important peice of ephemera from the heart of graffiti's first generation.
