A Global Street Art Story: Alice Pasquini
Alice Pasquini represents her country of Italy in Station 16's Global Street Art Story.

The artist, born and based in Rome, places an emphasis on strong, independent women to counteract the incessant proliferations of overly sexualized women in pop culture and the media. Her print, launching at Station 16 Gallery this week, will reflect this message as the artist represents a strong woman wearing a face-covering hoodie that only a vandal would wear.
Enzo Sarto Cannot Be Stopped
There is an inherent shock value when viewing the work of Enzo Sarto. Executed in a clean and crisp manner, Sarto’s photographs highlight a deceptive innocence that demands attention. Although stating that his work “is about passions, prejudices, and fear,” a specific clarification, such as why a little girl wears a bandana around her face like a vandal and holds a gun as if she just committed murder, remains elusive. Politically and socially charged images infiltrate much of Sarto’s work, producing a dialogue that begs for an explanation.
