Preview: Miss Van and Ciro Schu at Soze Gallery and Time to Shine Gallery

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Though their styles might seem like an unlikely match at a first glance, French-born, Barcelona-based artist Miss Van and Brazilian artist Ciro Schu have spent the summer traveling and collaborating together on murals and other projects. While Ciro Schu’s painting style revels in angular Cubist lines and edges that also come across in his painstakingly-detailed wood sculptures, Miss Van opts for soft colors and curves to render voluptuous, surreal temptresses. Still, the two artists’ styles come together with visual chemistry. Months of mural painting in Sao Paolo and the UK have accumulated in two side-by-side solo shows at LA’s Soze Gallery and Time to Shine Gallery — two sister art spaces located next door to one another. Miss Van’s “Room for Cream” and Ciro Schu’s “Makumbia” will open September 21. Take a look at an early preview of the two shows as well as some photos of Ciro and Miss Van’s collaborative murals.
