Three years ago I sat for Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, the artist behind the Stop Telling Women To Smile street art campaign against street harassment. The last thing I imagined is my face would end up in several episodes of Spike Lee’s Netflix series, which Tatyana is doing art direction for.
Now people keep hitting me up saying they saw me on it. I had no clue until one of my twitter followers asked if that was my face they saw.
Here are some shots of the original canvas and wheatpastes she did of my image (including one where someone scribbled “why not?” in response to it).
Berkeley or Oakland, California
