In the macho graffiti and street-art arenas, women's perspectives are not just welcome, but necessary. The styles represented by each of the Denver artists in our list below are neither delicate nor flimsy, but supremely badass. An outdoor canvas gives each piece's message an urgency and power that's lacking in similar works framed on a gallery wall.

Like most Denver creatives, these women have a wide range of vocations, from full-time gallery staff to graffiti artists, business owners, curators, world travelers and even spiritual healers. Here are fifteen street and studio artists who kick ass and just happen to be women.
