Miss Van Box: limited edition print and catalogue
Drago is offering you the opportunity to own a rare and unique collection of Miss Van’s cutting-edge surrealist art. Included in this beautifully presented red box is one 27×23 cm limited edition giclée print from the book Wild at Heart in a edition of 100. Printed on Somerset velvet enhanced paper, signed and numbered by the artist, the framed painting stunningly captures Miss Van’s distinctive iconography.
Also included is a copy of the book Twinkles, in which Miss Van has gone from painting the curvy, enticing pin-ups in the streets of Toulouse, to producing the melancholic and subtle works showcased at her latest exhibition at the 18 Gallery in Shanghai and the Magda Danysz gallery in Paris. Together with an insightful introduction by Magda Danysz, as well as an exclusive look at many paintings that were not featured in the exhibition, the book presents an immersive and encapsulating transition into the renowned artist’s new, darker style.

“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.” – Miss Van
