Miss Van Virgen Print

Miss Van is of course the Toulouse native now resident in Barcelona who revolutionised what was possible in graffiti when she took to the streets in the early 90’s. Her 'poupee' characters painted with brush and acrylic instantly stood-out and she’s been copied and collected all over the world ever since.

The main point of interest from a printing perspective is the final layer has been rendered with a powdered graphite ink - which feels just like a pencil sketch and has all the lightness and subltly of the original artwork, plus the orange is day-glo.
