TOOFLY is an artist, designer and social entrepreneur. Born in Ecuador and raised in New York City her work fluidly blends her native roots with the inner city sensibilities of the quintessential “around the way girl.” TOOFLY gained popularity as a teen in the early 90′s as one of the few graffiti women to rise up and paint in a male dominated scene. Through the Younity initiative, a not-for-profit arts collective she co-founded in 2007, TOOFLY has empowered young women to become independent artists and work within their communities. Staying true to her roots TOOFLY continues to draw feelings from the ever-changing world around her. Her work can be found on New York City streets, and within the confines of various art and cultural institutions. TOOFLY’s work has been published in GRAFFITI WOMEN, GRAFFITI NEW YORK, and GRAFFITI THE NEXT LEVEL.

“Few&Far wanted our next production to have some type of meaning behind it, since bee’s are extremely diligent but at the same time very small and easily effected by environment changes etc. The honey bee’s are dying at rapid rate enough to effect all world’s food. We felt the best theme for this wall would be Queen Bee’s it carried a lot meaning for us. We work as a solid team as the bee’s do just the same, but in our hive we are all Queen’s!” -M
Sketches for the Queen Bee wall HERE.
In late 2006, something strange began to happen to America’s honeybees. Colonies that were once thriving suddenly went still, almost overnight. The worker bees that make hives run simply disappeared, their bodies never to be found.
