The art, street art, graffiti or all of the above that Miss Van’s work (also known as Vanessa Castex) has been characterized as varies from ” an initiation of feminism into the street art scene” to a criticism of femininity altogether.  Her portrayal of women is doll-like, but in various body formations and deviating from the canonical current beauty.

Street art is where Miss Van established herself as an artist since the age of 18. She was born and began her work in Toulouse, France but is now based and blossoming in Barcelona.

"Gas Mask" by Gideon Rubin
After being invited to a champagne social for the upcoming Art Basel events at The Convention Center of Miami Beach, I researched the featured artist-Gideon Rubin.
This piece speaks to current humanity on so many levels. Everyday we can turn on the news and see another person getting tear gassed. In a way this is frightening, and I think that is what Rubin is trying to bring into his art. None of his figures have a face, just a blank slate of what once was or what they were born into.

The decline of humanity is caused by too much prosperity and oppulence. This barbarism within invites barbarism from without, leading to complete demise.
Eugene Delacroix’s “Death of Sardanapalus” 1827
This historical work shows the conflict between the Neoclassical and Romantic movements in art. It is replete with luxury and voluptuousness, while at the same time resembling empires at their most opulent cycle of eternal misery. It is not a moralizing or heroic work, but it shows how civilization breeds its own kind of destruction.
