UR New York (Fernando Romero & Mike Baca - aka SKI & 2ESAE)
Our mission is to create an urban-industrial aesthetic by combining graffiti,
photography, screen-printing and graphic design with a social message.
We seek to inspire respect and tolerance through our creativity,
but especially hope we can reach the youth of the world to help them attain their dreams
I try to convey an authenticity illustrating the triumph of the human spirit shared
by those in under represented urban and rural environments.
My art is nothing more than the deep exploration and documentation
of personal and urban experiences.
I utilize the inner-city environment to complete my narratives.
Watching my daughters grow from girls into women through emotional trauma,
and not being able to control it, plays a pivotal role in my work.
I render people as if dressed up for Día de Muertos.
I mix and match vibrant color with art and high fashion in city streets around the world.

Panmela Castro was a young graffiti artist in Brazil using the streets of Rio de Janeiro as her canvas,
when she realized she could turn her artwork into a radical public forum for change.
She works with young people globally and created a foundation called Redi Name, an urban art network
of female urban artists that addresses gender inequality through public art and graffiti.
Redi Name will benefit from a share of the profits of the sale from We’ve Got Your Back Girl.
POP International Galleries is humbled to present this important show.
It is a moment where men can stand up and proudly proclaim that
REAL MEN ARE FEMINISTS!
