Evoking classic Hollywood glamour, the Andrea Michaelsson Stencil Art is breathtaking. The portraits are created by Barcelona street artist Andrea Michaelsson, who composes one half of the famous artist duo BTOY. Michaelsson began working as a street artist in 2002, and has since mastered her craft by improvising with various art techniques.

Covering street walls throughout Europe to art galleries in Los Angeles, London, Mexico and Barcelona, Michaelsson shows how elegant stencil art can be. Michaelsson’s art has a strong sense of nostalgia by paying homage to famous female icons such as Audrey Hepburn, Maureen O’Hara, and Barbra Streisand.

Each face reminds us of a time where these classic beauties used style and grace to capture the silver screen. Once again their faces capture our attention, as BTOY is currently showing in the Stencil Bastards exhibition at Starkart, Zurich and possibly on a street near you.
