Radhia Novat, her real name, passed away on Sunday May 22 according to her family after a short illness. However, they have not provided further details.
A young Miss Tic rose to notoriety in the late ’70s after being accused of defacing public property, but it didn’t take long for the enigmatic female figure designs to become famous and sought after.
One of the founders of stencil art, the style has come back to represent Paris and can be seen not only throughout the city but around the world.
Miss Tic’s works have been exhibited in galleries around the world and she has worked with many leading fashion brands including Kenzo and Louis Vuitton.
With the tributes to the artist, the AFP news agency reported that the French Minister of Culture, Rima Abdul Malak, praised her “iconic, resolutely feminist” work.
A student of arts and theater, Miss Tic was born in the Montmartre district of Paris in 1956, to a Tunisian immigrant father and a mother from Normandy.
She is quoted as saying in a 2011 interview, “I had a background in street theater and I liked this idea of street art.
“At first I thought, ‘I’m going to write poems.’ And then ‘we need images’ with these poems. I started with self-portraits and then turned to other women.”
Miss Tic, who has died aged 66, will not be forgotten as her work will live on for many years to come with the many brands she designed for.
