Colombian street artist caught on tape

May 14, 2009 |  9:16 am

You may remember Colombian street artist Bastardilla from here on La Plaza a few months back. 

Now you can see more of the mystery girl, who prefers to remain anonymous and allow her art to speak for itself, in this video from Nadja Drost on GlobalPost.

The artist, whose name is Spanish for "italics," is determined to remain known only by her pseudonym. Fame, apparently, doesn't interest her.

But if she carries on creating such amazing work, she might not be able to stay in the shadows for much longer.
