Copro Gallery currently presents Miss Van’s Wild At Heart – her first solo exhibition with Copro and one of Miss Van’s largest exhibitions ever. For this body of work Miss Van explores ‘Wild At Heart’ through paintings and drawings on paper and wood keeping the movement, lightness of the lines, the spontaneity blurry, as in a dream or vision floating.

Miss Van started wall-painting in the streets at the age of 18, initiating the feminine movement in street art. Her sultry female characters began to pop up on city center walls in the mid 1990s and they instantly possessed a timeless quality, as if women had always painted such graffiti in the streets. The more she moved into gallery work and could work with the nuances of more fragile media than the streets would allow, her characters grew more sensitive, subtle, and delicately rendered. She is now exhibiting all around the world from NY to LA, Europe (France, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Italy, UK, etc.), and Asia.
