Graffiti too often gets a bad rep before people get the chance to see that it’s an artistic endeavor. The women of Few and Far are trying to change that.

An international collective of skateboarders, graffiti and street artists, these women are “committed to creating spaces that foster artistic expression amongst youth and the community, as well as addressing human and animal rights, environmental affairs, and social consciousness in [their] work.”

Few and Far was founded in 2011 by the artist Meme and has evolved into a movement. “Few and Far is pushing to encourage girls to have ambition," she explains, "whether it be with painting, skateboarding, fashion, sports, teaching youth or whatever they want to do productively.”

FNF was born from ingenious artists seeking full lives, and they haven't stopped yet: This past April, the crew took to the streets in a five-stop road trip from San Francisco to Tijuana. FNF packed a van full of talented women, an abundance of spray cans and an attitude that will contribute to their success. Watch the trailer now:
