Hyuro is an Argentinian-born street and urban artist best known for painterly compositions that combine vernacular depictions of femininity with socio-political undertones.

Originally working on canvas, Hyuro took to the streets after striking up a friendship with Spanish street artist Escif. She has since carved out a reputation for addressing prevalent social and political issues in her work, with the characters she depicts often subordinated by patriarchal and capitalistic systems of power.

By submitting reflections on both individual and collective identities, and questioning the conditions of freedom as the fundamental and inalienable rights of the person, Hyuro has become one of the most influential female artists working in public space today.
