The book traces the Twinkles work since 2008 Miss Van Stolen Heart Series at its last exhibition Twinkles through Still a little or Immaculada Magic. The book shows how Miss Van has evolved over time, while remaining unruffled in his representations of the female figure, probably in part autobiographical. Miss Van was able to develop his favorite character from a world of bright colors, to a world darker and more intense. Over time, Miss Van has thus closer to the Pop art movement like Surrealism and integrates undeniable influences like those of Frida Kahlo. Twinkles allows us to understand the evolution of the artist to paint a style more mature and sophisticated, without losing touch with its origins Street Art.
ABOUT THIS ARTIST:
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.”
