Miss Van began painting in the streets of her hometown, Toulouse, France, in the early 1990's. Her sensual 'poupee' characters, painted with brush and acrylic paint as opposed to spraypaint, powerfully stood out from the rest of the male-dominated graffiti pieces seen throughout her city. Their sensuality, femininity, and unique style gained her work recognition and respect, both from females and males in the graffiti world and as well as the art world. Soon her work had a global following and her characters became icons in their own right. She has inspired many and her paintings have become highly sought after by collectors.
She has had solo shows in Paris, London, Barcelona, Mexico City,Shanghai, across the United States , Brasil and more. Currently she lives and works in Barcelona.
