"As a child I was ok, just a little bit too inquisitive and just a little bit too obsessed by drawing and art history. So when I grew up I got a degree in philosophy and a phd in mathematical logic, and then I decided to follow my lifelong passion for visual arts and thus attended the Fine Art Academy of Bologna (illustration and comics, fine arts). I am geeky. I know that.
In 2009 with Soulfood Community I founded Soupy Records, a project involving both music and visual arts.
I am currently living and working in Bologna, italy. My favourite medium is traditional oil painting, though I enjoy watercolours as well. I paint over canvas, wood panels, old golden frames and whatever I find in my cellar.
I love illustration and fairy tales, old christmas postcards, ancient greek, latin, logic and baroque patterns." ~ Erica Calardo
