“Shalak Attack” is a Canadian-Chilean visual artist dedicated to painting, muralism, spray paint urban art, and canvas art. For over a decade, she has manifested her artistic expression on walls across the world. She is a co-founder and co-director of the international art collectives “Essencia”, the “Bruxas”, and the ““Clandestinos”.
In Shalak’s artistic practice, she fuses the spirit and the aesthetics of traditional South Amercan muralism with contemporary graffiti and street art. Shalak’s distinctive multi-layered and signature use of colour are emblematic of her unique style that inhabits the realm of psychedelic magical realism.
Shalak has participated in numerous artistic projects and exhibitions in Canada, Chile, Brazil, UK, Sweden, Senegal, Palestine, Jordan, Israel, Belgium, Spain, Argentina, Venezuela, Mexico, USA, Paraguay, and the Dominican Republic.
