"People see me, or see my work rather, online, and they assume that I'm a man, and they assume that I'm a lot older than I am."

Elyssa Harper is a graphic design student at Buffalo State College in Buffalo, New York. She is an artist whose work crosses mediums and genres, mixing fine art with stencil-based public art. Either legally commissioned or unlawfully tagged, her iconic works aim to make public spaces more pleasing areas to be by adding a splash of color to the dull or decaying cityscape around it.
