About Panmela Castro

Brazil’s “graffiti queen”

"Empowering women creates a more equal society"

Panmela Castro uses street art as a platform to raise awareness for women’s rights in Brazil. In her home of Rio de Janeiro, gender inequality is widespread with its effects being particularly exacerbated by a lack of public investment in education and safety in neighbourhoods such as Catete.

Her fierceness and pride have resulted in her current reputation as Brazil’s “graffiti queen”, having been listed as one of Newsweek’s 150 Women Who Shake the World and noted as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.

Panmela’s artwork depicts her vision of a better tomorrow where we bring women to power through unity. Central to the concept is the notion that empowering women creates a more equal society overall, making it not just a women’s responsibility but everyone’s responsibility.

For every limited-edition artwork sold, we're proud to donate all profits to Panmela’s community initiative, Rede NAMI, in providing graffiti workshops to empower Afro-Brazilian women in underrepresented communities in their #AfroGrafiteiras project.
