missvanMiss Van hails from Toulouse, France, however she has spent most of her artistic life in Barcelona. She began mural painting in 1993, at the age of 20, which initiated the feminine movement in Street Art.  Since beginning this artistic path she has travelled the world painting her instantly recognizable women on the streets, as well as on canvas. She has exhibited extensively for decades worldwide in Europe, the United States and Asia.
Miss Van’s recent artistic pursuits have taken her to Los Angeles, Miami, Spain and Brazil, marking her return to street art after several years spent solely painting in the studio. She's charged her new works with increased depth, emotion and an elevated romantic darkness and delicacy. Her iconic sultry female characters reappear in sensual yet dark animal masks and evolving environments. In gauzy romantic compositions, they carry a surreal quality of burlesque, resonating with a beautiful synergy of rawness, softness and emotion. Miss Van adds, "I’m evolving and growing up with my paintings. It’s the only way, when you paint with emotions and feelings. I’m trying to be true with myself."
