An artist that I really love is Miss Van. Miss Van was born in Toulouse, France and is now living in Barcelona, Spain. She has had exhibits everywhere from NYC, LA to Europe and Asia. She began her career as a street artist (graffiti) at the age of 18, initiating the feminine movement in street art. Eventually, she created these female figures that she calls poupées (dolls), and is well known for today.
"Painting on walls was a way to show that I was boycotting the conventional art world. At my beginnings, I had a rebel mind. I also find this more exciting to paint in the street because it is forbidden." —Miss Van
Although she started painting in the streets, today she spends most of her time in her studio. Here's a peek of her studio. I always love to see where an artist works. It's just so inspiring!
Hope you enjoyed a little piece of the art of Miss Van!
