The Street Art that empowers women

Lediesis is a female duo of Florentine street artists now known throughout Italy. Their goal is to pay homage to female figures who have inspired and still inspire the new generations. Even if their first works started to appear in the urban space of Florence only three years ago, in March 2019, Lediesis became well known to the Italian public. Since then they works were displayed at the Archaeological Museum in Naples, at MAD in Firenze, at Museo Civico in Bari and in many Italian galleries.

Their paste-up appeared on the walls of numerous Italian cities: from Florence to Venice, from Rome to Milan, from Bologna to Bari, from Naples to L’Aquila. During the last three years, Lediesis’ Superwomen became an inseparable part Italian artistic heritage. Their works treat serious and important matters with lightness and fun. They talk about gender equality and human rights.

Their desire for change determines their painting and dictates the choice of their protagonists: free and enlightened women who send positive message of personal growth facilitating the spiritual growth of our societies. Each heroine has left a heritage in her particular field, an example to follow and thoughts to be remembered, shared and honoured. Also they choice to paint on their chests the flaming Superman’s S, an iconic symbol of a male superhero, because they wanted to play, overturn and dis- identify the traditional gender roles. All of their superwomen wink at the passers-by who can stop to look at them and establish an intimate, friendly and complicit relationship with them.

LeDiesis participate in the XIIIth Florence Biennale as Guests of Honour and Winners of the “Lorenzo il Magnifico” Award from the President for their important contribution to the redefinition and dissemination of an idea of femininity capable of breaking down stereotypes and stimulating reflection on gender identity. Through the commendable artistic production of the Superwomen, they have become part of the artistic heritage of Florence and, through the web, of the whole world, they have spread an original image of femininity, which transmits strength and irony, acting as a source of inspiration also for the new generations.
