Miss Van, b. 1973. Vanessa Alice Bensimon, from Toulouse, France, started wall painting in the streets of Toulouse at the age of 18. She is considered one of the best known painters of the graffiti scene. Her drawings are of sloe-eyed women, covering a varied array of female forms and expressing many different emotions.
In France, a very original form of graffiti was born in 1993 with Miss Van and Mademoiselle Kat. Miss Van is just one facet of the thriving graffiti scene in Toulouse, but she has probably gained the most worldwide acclaim for her work. She has gone on to exhibit canvases in galleries across France, Europe and the United States.
Recently, she has moved to Barcelona, Spain and designed prints for the new Fornarina collection.
Miss Van was also referenced by punk rock comic artist Mitch Clem in his semi-autobiographical comic San Antonio Rock City.
Taggeuse des murs de la ville rose, Toulouse, Miss Van artiste-peintre issue du mouvement du graffiti, a choisi la rue comme lieu d'exposition permanent. De façon exceptionnelle, elle est exposée en galerie aujourd'hui.
