Swoon, real name Caledonia Dance Curry, first began creating street art at the end of the last century. Most typically using the wheatpaste and paper technique, her works demonstrate a strong draughtsmanship and expressionist style, often featuring portraits of friends and family. In the last few years her exhibitions have become more ambitious, with her first solo show at Dietch Projects in New York in 2005 including large-scale installations as well as more traditional wall pieces. Swoon has become involved in a number of collective groups, in particular the Konibit Shelter project, in which artists, builders, architects and engineers have been creating new living and public spaces in post-earthquake Haiti, and Transformazium, which aims to revitalise the derelict buildings of the town of Braddock, Pennsylvania.
