HELLO, MY NAME IS SPAZ —

🥲

Laurie Maravilla (aka, SPAZ) is a Singapore-based artist from Manila, Philippines. A two-time recipient of the Lasalle Scholarship, SPAZ is the first South East Asian to clinch the Takifuji International Art Award in 2013. Her works and writings possess a radical political slant, whereby personal experiences of motherhood, politics of gender, public space, and self-determination serve alternately as crosshairs of art- making.

Her involvement with the arts has also transcended into archiving and research when she had co- founded THE SOLIDARITY MOVEMENT, an initiative that seeks to establish and document graffiti and street art as a culture and art discipline in the South East Asian region. THE SOLIDARITY MOVEMENT under RSCLS is one of the highest recipients of the Singapore National Arts Council seed grant, which funded the collective’s projects and research for the succeeding three years. She had also founded REBEL DAUGHTERS, a movement aimed to empower women in male- dominated industries such as graffiti, as well as to address issues concerning the representation of women within and outside of the said discipline.
