 “Wander & Wayfare” evolved as a natural extension of the artists’ mutual professional respect and friendships with one another. “The way I'm connected to everyone in theline-up is that I've met them all while traveling,” said Hueman. “San Francisco is a meeting point, one among many. I've hung out and painted with these girls in New York, Miami, Hawaii, and Los Angeles, and through that, there is an exchange of ideas, and though it’s not the central focus of the project, it’s no coincidence that the artists in“Wander & Wayfare” are all female. Hueman and Rocha wanted to create a platform for women street artists working in the notoriously male-dominated field. With a noticeably small percentage of female artists at similar international street art festivals, “Wander & Wayfare” is a way to promote the work of high-caliber female artists while simultaneously beautifying two of San Francisco’s burgeoning neighborhoods. The project comes hot off the heels of the launch of Daniele Rocha’s new non-profit, 1 Brush Initiative, which she is using to spur the creation of new public art throughout San Francisco. With its carefully curated line-up of female artists of different backgrounds, it sets the tone for the inclusion of more diverse voices in San Francisco’s art scene and the street art world at large.
