Showing: Miss Van – “She-Wolves” @ Merry Karnowsky

One the most well-known and celebrated female street artists, Miss Van, recently opened her show “She-Wolves” (previewed) at Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles.  This new body of work featured the French artist’s signature “poupes” dressed up in animal attire although she seems to have taken it a step further with some of the characters possessing some very real mammary glands, demonstrated vividly in the amazing painting seen above (to the right). Strong images match an equally strong feminine strength that is typically evident in […]

Preview: Miss Van – “She-Wolves” @ Merry Karnowsky Gallery (Los Angeles)

The last time we heard from French street artist Miss Van, she was opening her retrospective show at StolenSpace in London in October of ’09. Fans on this side of the pond will be happy to hear that they will have a chance to see her seductive “poupes” in person as she will be opening “She-Wolves” this Saturday night at Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles. For this body of work, her feminine “dolls” reflect on their predatory nature and and surrender to their animal […]

Openings: Miss Van – “Love Stain” @ StolenSpace

Last week, Miss Van brought her signature “poupes” for a well-received visit to the StolenSpace gallery in London. “Love Stain” (teased) was definitely a special show as it was a retrospective (with new works as well) that showcased the many stages and facets of her work. You can imagine the significance and breadth of this exhibition as the French but now Barcelona-based artist has been painting in the streets for almost 20 years. More images after the jump…

Teaser: Miss Van – “Lovestain” @ StolenSpace

Acclaimed female street artist Miss Van is set to open her show “Lovestain” at StolenSpace on the 1st of October. Although the show will be somewhat of a retrospective, she’ll also be bringing a new body of work that sounds impressive as she’ll be taking over two exhibition spaces. Last we saw of her, she was opening a small two person show with Jeremy Fish in SF so we are excited to see what she has created for her largest solo to date. There will […]

Openings: Miss Van & Jeremy Fish @ FIFTY24SF Gallery

Jeremy Fish’s “Ghost of the Barbary Coast” and Miss Van’s “Still a Little Magic” opened simultaneously tonight at FIFTY24SF Gallery. Check out the sick collaboration piece they did above. Fish’s work for this show hearkens back to the gold rush days of San Francisco where gambling, prostitution, and crime were part of the seedy Barbary Coast area. His body of work fit this theme well with his mainly wood works and gold frames along with a “saloon” area. His popularity is steadily on the rise […]
