BIP, or in other words, “Believe in People”, is the name of the artist originally from New Haven, Connecticut and based on the east coast of the USA. Recently he finished his latest wall; an ambitious intervention that was carried out in San Francisco on 816 Mission.
The representation mixes the appearance of a muscular woman with the face of a young girl. Through this peculiar idea BiP intends to pay homage to the women of the Bay Area while making a direct reference to the location by means of the tattoos painted on the figure: 415 and 510 are the San Francisco and Oakland postal codes, respectively.
400 MTN spray cans were necessary to complete the five story high artwork which was made possible with the collaboration of Montana Colors, Westfield SF Centre, and the young girl, Ja’Niyha W, who posed as the model for the portrait.
