Miss Van. Photo via Hi-Fructose.

The year is going by fast – it’s already the middle of March. As usual, there are many interesting art openings to get out to this weekend including a show from Miss Van in France. Magda Danysz Gallery will be hosting Twinkles, a new body of work from the French street artist who hasn’t shown in her home country in a while. Make sure you take a look at more studio shots from our friends over at Hi-Fructose.
