Yusto/Giner Gallery presents “summer times”, a collective exhibition curated by Miss Van (Toulouse, France 1973), the most internationally well known urban art artist that resides in Spain.
Miss Van started wall-painting at the age of 20, in 1993, initiating the feminine movement in Street Art. Originating from Toulouse, France and having spent most of her artistic life in Barcelona, Miss Van has travelled the world painting her instantly recognizable women on the streets, as well as on canvas. She has exhibited extensively for decades worldwide in Europe, USA and Asia.
Miss Van’s recent artistic pursuits have taken her to Los Angeles, Miami, Spain and Brazil, which hallmarks a recent return to street art, after several years spent solely painting in the studio, charging her new works with increased depth, emotion and an elevated romantic darkness and delicacy. Her iconic sultry female characters reappear in sensual yet dark animal masks and evolving environments.
In gauzy romantic compositions, they carry a surreal quality of burlesque, resonating with a beautiful synergy of rawness, softness and emotion.
These twenty years spent paintings have generated many stories, collaborations and meetings with artists from all over the world. Some of them are in this exposition.
Their trajectory and their quality has determined that Miss Van can count on them to produce part of the project Summer Times, a very personal vision of the urban and contemporary art world.
