37th Annual Fall Festival Featured Artist: Niz
We are proud to present our poster and t-shirts design for this fall; which will be available at the Pecan Street Association booth at 6th St. and Trinity during the festival.
It is designed by our featured artist, Eleanor Herasimchuk (known as “Niz“). An Austinite, originally from Lima, Peru, and with Ukrainian roots, she typically works on mural scale. She fuses Mesoamerican magical realism/”mythical photorealism” with contemporary, hip-hop insight.
Designated “the Queen of Austin stencil art” by renown graffiti artist Nate Nordstrom, her work is instantly recognizable and sets a bar for other street artists. Her work can be seen outside Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop in south Austin, Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar, The Parlor Room on Rainey, Stay Gold, Sparkle Kids Upscale Resale, Salon Sovay, SoCo Lofts, New India Restaurant, Elizabeth Ney Museum and by Home Slice Pizza on S. Congress Ave.
She was recently a part of Mexic-Arte Museum’s El Mero Muro mural project. Watch a time-lapse video of her working on a Janice Joplin piece.
