Graffiti is much more than spray paint and over-sized letters now-a-days.Brooklyn street artist Swoon specializes in graffiti with life-size paper cutouts and wheatpaste prints. The legendary graffiti artist, a WOMAN named Caledonia “Callie” Curry, graduated from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and began her street art more than a decade ago in 1999. She said in an interview the name came from an ex-boyfriend’s dream who saw her as a graffiti artist before she was a graffiti artist.

For TONS more, here’s Flickr’s Swoon group, and she has a Wikipedia page too. You know you’ve totally “made it” when you have your own Wiki page. And for fun, read this article about how she traveled to the Venice Biennale in a boat made out of garbage. How punk rawk of her!
