Miss Van – Loving Foxes With Muse – Fousion Gallery

Miss Van

Miss Van started wall-painting with brushes on the walls of Toulouse in the ’90s and quickly expanded her work throughout Europe (with Barcelona as her home city), influencing the feminine movement in European Urban Art. She is now considered among the most established international urban contemporary female artists.  

From acrylic to oil on canvas, Miss Van is in constant evolution, enhancing her work with cultural and tribal symbols, elements of folklore and diverse sources of inspiration, allowing herself to grow together with her characters. 

As a matter of fact, the sensual and defiant girls of the past have evolved to sensitive muses and warriors of today. 

Although they are still fragile and domineering, voluptuous and sensitive, they do no longer belong only to the streets, they now also shine in the largest international galleries and shows. The alluring outfits gave way to folkloric dresses and multi-traditional accessories. 

Tears flowed, makeup held on, sometimes replaced by powerful masks.

And behind their mask, Miss Van’s muses, sultry yet elegant, reveal themselves as the very embodiment of femininity between strength and delicacy, sensuality and mystery. More ambiguous and stronger, sometimes burlesque, sensual or playful, they invite to share their torments, doubts, secrets and fantasies …

The origins of a feminine pioneer in a period when Urban Art and Graffiti started flourishing in the European context. Miss Van's art has been in constant evolution for 30 years, from the young ladies that invaded the walls and streets of Europe with raw illustrative brush strokes in the 90s to the Surrealist exquisite muses living in oil-painted canvases today.

During a time when all the codes and styles exploded, in the context of variations, breakthroughs, and exploration, Miss Van resolutely appears in the male-dominated Graffiti and Urban Art world, distinguishing her style from classical bombing with her paintbrush gentle strokes.
