At the beginnings, my dolls were self-portraits. Graffiti has a very megalomaniac side; instead of writing my name, I chose to represent myself through my dolls.

— Miss Van

Born in Toulouse, France and graffing from the age of 18, Miss Van has one of the most recognisable style in the street art scene. Her dolls, with their exaggerated curves and sultry eyes, often in less then demure positions, ooze seduction with all intention to provoke a reaction. Her work has been exhibited in various galleries across the globe, often with other great street art talents, such as Banksy, Faile, and Shepard Fairey. More recently Miss Van moved to Barcelona and partnered with fashion designer Anaoana producing clothes and accessories under the brand name Miss Van & Anaoana.
