London: Miss Van & Olek @ Stolenspace

Miss Van & Olek - Stolenspace

StolenSpace gallery  just opened a double exhibition by leading female street artists, Miss Van and Olek. Despite having worked on public installations and group shows across the globe, it is the first time they produce a two-person show together. Based on their strong friendship and artistic sisterhood, both artists are showing their mutual appreciation for each other work .

Miss Van new body of work titled Glamorous Darkness maintain the signature aesthetic of her ‘poupées’ (dolls) within a dreamlike landscape and colours. Adorned with masquerade, animal-like masks her sensual and erotic female characters evolve and interact with each other.

In a tribute, Olek has recreated several of Miss Van’s favourite paintings in crochet form with intricate details, from the masks, corsets, wigs, hats to lips and nails and is displaying these artworks as photographic representations. Her exhibition title, Let’s not get caught, let’s keep going, borrows itself from a Thelma and Louise film quote which reminds the artist of her friendship with Miss Van. Along with these new works, Olek has taken over the gallery space and covered the floor to ceiling in her signature crochet.
