“The original Mujer Pajaro V was the first piece sold at my Glamorous Darkness show this past May of 2014 at Stolen Space Gallery in London.


I am especially affectionate towards this piece because I totally improvised it directly onto the canvas with no idea of what it was going to turn into. Initially I was struggling, changing elements and colors a few times. I didn’t expect it to be a great piece as it wasn’t easily flowing…but in the end it’s one of my favorites from this series.


There are many unique things about this piece. The pink background. The pyramidal composition. The way the characters are floating. The drama and emotion in the empty eyes. The harmony and fusion between the mother and the baby bird. The dark feeling contrasting the bright background. The pyramidal composition makes it stable, relaxing and endless for the viewer to stare at. It’s also a bit dreamy with the blurry water bottom effect.” – Miss Van



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 a gauzy romantic compositions, they carry a surreal quality of burlesque, resonating with a beautiful synergy of rawness, softness and emotion. Miss Van adds, “I’m evolving and growing up with my paintings. It’s the only way, when you paint with emotions and feelings. I’m trying to be true with myself.”
