  • Erica Calardo is a painter and modal logician based in Bologna, Italy.

    Her works in oils, watercolors, and pencils are windows on the solitude of lost souls. She explores the realm of Beauty, Grotesque, Magic, by creating eery oneiric feminine figures who tell tales of long forgotten dreams, of an imaginary timeless past.

    Erica's technique is strongly influenced by Italian old masters, especially the Mannerists and the Baroque female school from Bologna. She is self-taught and has learned her skills from books written in the Renaissance and Baroque era. She counts as her masters Leonardo, Lavinia Fontana, Bronzino.

    Since 2010, she has showcased her work in galleries in Italy (Mondo Bizzarro, Studio21), and abroad (La Luz de Jesus - LA, Auguste Clown - Australia, Modern Eden, Swoon,Flower Pepper, WWA, and Spoke Art, Distinction - USA, Pinkzeppelin - Berlin among others). Erica's paintings have appeared in several magazines and books, like Miroir Magazine,Beautiful Bizarre, Il Manifesto, Inside Art, Italian Pop Surrealism, Illustrati.

    Besides painting, Erica is currently a post doctoral fellow at the University of Bologna, conducting her research in modal logic. She has a degree in Philosphy and a Ph.D. in mathematical logic. She has recently curated Ania Tomicka's first solo show at Mondo Bizzarro Gallery, Italy.

    Erica is in love with ancient castles, old christmas postcards, memento mori from the Victorian Age, logic, history of art, four poster beds, baroque clothing, fairytales, mirrors, harpsichords, ghost stories, and punk rock.
