TOOFLY – Artist Profile

jaymaldonado_2fly_smTOOFLY is an NYC-based artist, designer, and entrepreneur. Recognized for her hard and fluid style, as well as her “around the way girl” steez back in the early ‘90s, TOOFLY gained popularity in the graffiti scene as a teen because she was one of the only females who stepped up to paint in a male dominated scene. She empowered various women to follow suit, and, in 2007, co-founded an international female arts collective entitled YOUNITY.

TOOFLY also runs a successful independent design company called STAY TRU, where she consults, designs, and develops urban art youth workshops. TOOFLY’s constant and active role in the community allows her to remain true to her roots as she continues to draw raw feelings from the ever-changing world around her. TOOFLY’s work can be found in various galleries, art, design, graf, and fashion publications, and books such as Graffiti Women and Graffiti the Next Level.
