Over the weekend I saw the much talked about film Exit Through the Gift Shop. I really enjoyed Bansky’s directorial debut, it contained never before seen footage of street artists and was surprisingly quite funny. As much fun Asael and I had watching the film, we definitely noticed the lack of female artists featured in the film. I’ll let you come to your own conclusions about that, but it did remind me of how much I love French Grafitti artist Miss Van.
A couple years ago I was fortunate enough to attend the Miss Van show at Merry Karnowsky Gallery. At the show I met Vanessa (Miss Van) and bought some of her limited edition postcards. Had I $15,000, I would’ve definitely bought a piece. Every time I get an email blast from Miss Van my heart breaks that I cannot attend one of her international shows. She’s in Mexico City right now at the Fifty24 Gallery if you live in the area.
