Lola the Illustrator started drawing at three and vandalizing walls when she was six years old. In 2014, she was caught creating some unauthorized street art in Bushwick, Brooklyn by Joe Ficalora, founder of the Bushwick Collective, who, after some initial scolding, invited her to join the team. Some of her influences include Jerkface, Magali Le Huche, Sipros, Dasic Fernández, Kylab, Chor Boogie, London Kaye, FKDL, Danielle Mastrion, and Hayao Miyazaki. When not painting or going to school, Lola enjoys reading (tons), writing stories and comics (also tons), skateboarding, and playing Nintendo games.
