Vali Myers by Ed van der Elsken #video #bohemian #art [#geekgirl]

I was invited to watch this video by Les Barany, another of Vali’s dear and loyal friends. Les was circulating it to Vali’s inner sanctum with the wish it jolted our memories of her. I assure you, once you knew Vali you would never forget her! I am delighted to hear of Vali Myers upcoming exhibition at the HR Giger Museum Gallery. Opening August 29, 2015, Gruyeres, Switzerland. I wish I could be there!!

For more on this extraordinary artist, Les Barany has also a dedicated Album on his Facebook page.

To hear what Vali sounded like check out my audio recordings of her back in the day!
