Dime is an Oakland based artist who began painting murals on the walls of East Oakland at the age of 10, and tagging graffiti when she was 12. She now uses that technique to create beautiful and powerful public art.
Dime’s self-taught work bridges graffiti and fine arts and her collaborations are seen worldwide in museums & galleries or found in the alleys of the barrios and the ghettos. She is well known for her funky graffiti letters and beautiful fierce characters that blossom beyond a canvas. Dime has exhibited her work in galleries, museums, apparel, print and fashion. Her inspiration comes from her surroundings, her neighborhood, and the beautiful resistance and stories of the people -where she continues to bring her art, style, and big heart to many low income and struggling communities
