Miss Van was born in 1973 in Toulouse, France and started painting on the streets at 20 years old. 1993 marked the initial inclusion of the artist’s iconic ‘doll face’ into one of her street murals becoming the iconic catalyst for the feminine Street Art movement.
The artist has spent most of her working life in Barcelona, using this vibrant city as a base whilst spreading her infamous brand of sensuous feminine portraiture across the rest of Europe, USA & Asia.
In recent years the artist has laid ever more emphasis on painting original artworks within her studio, however she has recently returned to the street with a new vigour and elevated romanticism.
Miss Van’s Golden Lady's Process
Nelly Duff is proud to offer the largest collection of Miss Van’s editions. Now exclusive to our gallery we are very excited to announce the new Miss Van limited edition screen print ‘Golden Lady’.
This edition of 70 on Somerset Soft Paper is a superb example of the artists flare for portraying great depth and emotion in the female form. The ‘Golden Lady’, poised in a highly sensual and alluring manner, displays a romantic darkness and fragility which is true to Miss Van’s signature style of iconic sultry female characters.
Miss Van has also produced for us some unique hand finished editions of the ‘Golden Lady’ where she has embellished and adorned her characters with even greater detail and shading, offering a bold option of hair colours and elaborate jewellery. These eye-catching prints really do stand out combining her beautiful soft lines with strong use of colour and playful composition.
