After moving to London artists Paulina PukytÄ— (Lithuania) and Minna Haukka (Finland) were new girls in town themselves, when they came across and collected these “urban folk art” specimens – hand-drawn posters made by workers of illegal brothels in Soho, intrigued by the amateur designs, childish, almost sweet handiworks in stark contrast to the business they advertise.

Taken out of context the words here can be about anyone of us – the way we might like to describe ourselves or to be described.
