Jocelyn Superstar received her name while working as a bicycle courier in Chicago in 1993. It was something of a messenger code name or nickname then, but later went on to become an alter ego, artist’s name, and graffiti tag name. In 1996, Ms. Superstar moved to San Francisco to begin graduate school at the San Francisco Art Institute. That same year, she began doing graffiti art. In 1999, she received her Master’s Degree in painting and sculpture. Then, in 2003, she shared an art residency with her co-collaborator, Isis Rodriguez at the San Francisco garbage dump’s Recology artist residency program where she really developed her love for recycled materials. The artist has also shown throughout the Bay Area and the United States and has been in numerous publications including being a featured artist in the film, Piece by Piece: The History of San Franciso Graffiti, Documented. Currently, Jocelyn Superstar is authoring a book with SFAUSTINA entitled Bay Area Graffiti 80s and 90s: Early Bombing, published by Mark Batty Publishers, to be released in March 2011.
