Miss Van

Miss Van, Vanessa Alice Bensimon (also known as Vanessa Castex), born in 1973 in Toulouse, France, is considered one of the best known painters of the graffiti scene. She started wall painting in the streets of Toulouse at the age of 18. Her drawings are of sloe-eyed women, covering a varied array of female forms and expressing many different emotions. Miss Van: "Painting on walls was a way to show that I was boycotting the conventional art world".
