Lydia Emily is a fine artist, street artist and activist. Her work has been seen nationally and worldwide — in the streets and in galleries from Milan and Berlin to NYC and DC to San Francisco and Los Angeles. Daughter of a civil rights protester, activism runs in her blood and comes from a life-long desire to spark fire in the people and the conviction that with enough passion, everyone can make a difference. She believes the public eye comes with profound social responsibility, a duty to stand up and speak out, which includes casting a discerning eye at one’s own government’s practices or other’s worldwide.
