Calendar 2021 by and of the works of #lediesis.
The street artist Lediesis (still unknown whether it’s one artist or a group of street artists), has painted in different corners of Rome and Florence 16 iconic women who left their mark on the world. Each of these iconic figures, which range from female movie starts to pop culture characters and artists, has the “S” of Superwoman. They’re also all winking– as a sign of complicity with the people that look at them, it’s as if each figure were saying “you too are like me, you too have superpowers!”
The first artworks were found in Florence in the occasion of Women’s day on March 8th, 2019, to celebrate women. Lediesis said the idea of Superwomen was born almost as a joke during the last visit of the Arte Fiera in Bologna, at the end of January 2019. The artworks were made in just a few days and it came natural for Lediesis to show them in the occasion of Women’s Day as a tribute to women. Slowly but surely, Rome became the second stop to portray these iconic ladies. Who knows, maybe another Italian city is up next?
