MIMI VANG OLSEN: PET PORTRAITIST chronicles the last West Village painter with her own store front as she enters the lives of several eccentric clients and immortalizes their pets. Mimi doesn’t just paint a portrait, she steps into clients lives and uncovers their stories, creating a richly detailed time capsule of who they are at the time of commission. 

This rare profile of a West Village legend is a thoughtful meditation on the importance of pets, art and The Village that will leave you inspired. Her art is truly a work of love.
