[Luxus+ Magazine] Engaged and poetic, look back on the work of the artist Miss Tic, disappeared this Sunday

Walking the streets of Paris, we often find ourselves in front of these women with a rebellious look and a poetic and political phrase. These women, the work of the artist Miss Tic, deliver a committed message. Look back on its path.

 

Miss Tic died on Sunday, May 22, at the age of 66 years. Radhia Novat, her real name, was born of a Tunisian immigrant father and a Norman mother, and began to spread her works in 1985 in the streets of the Butte-Montmartre, where she grew up, the Marais, Montorgueil and the Butte-aux-Cailles.

 

In the 1970s, she discovered street theater and then, in the early 1980s, spent time in the United States where graffiti, a branch of hip-hop culture, was born. Back in Paris, she had the idea of intervening in the public space when she saw the paintings of Fine Arts students posted in the street. Being part of a nascent artistic movement, she chose the stencil technique to quickly multiply her interventions and the visibility of her works. Nourished by poetry, she found her style by writing poems to which she added portraits of women, first self-portraits and then figures inspired by magazines, advertising or fashion.
