  • Modern Eden Gallery is pleased to present ‘Mona’, an international group exhibition featuring contemporary adaptations of Da Vinci’s masterpiece, “Mona Lisa”. The Mona Lisa has been acclaimed as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world." In this exhibition contemporary artists from all over the world are taking on that tradition and re-creating the well-known masterpiece with their own artistic variations.
  • "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
