Nuovo atelier – Studio 4

Ed è passato già quasi un mese da quando ho trasferito baracca, carta, colori e pennelli allo Studio 4, nel cuore di Friedrichshain.
Ho trascorso 5 anni a dipingere nel mio appartamento, in uno spazio ritagliato sotto la finestra della camera da letto, ed è andata benissimo. Sono affezionata a quel davanzale che ho riempito di piante e sporcato di gocce di colore, e devo confessare che mi piaceva lavorare in pigiama, soprattutto lungo gli scuri inverni berlinesi. Ma quest’anno ho sentito fosse giunto il momento di uscire dalla mia confort zone pigiamosa e rischiare un po’ di più, investendo su me stessa e sul mio lavoro.
Così eccomi qui, nello studio in Samariterstraße 4, condiviso con altri artisti e designer fantastici e non potrei essere più convinta che sia stata la decisione giusta.
Quindi se vi trovate a Berlino, passate a trovarmi, la mia scrivania è giusto accanto la finestra.

Coffee Spoon – exhibition in Berlin

I am so happy to announce my first solo exhibition in Berlin!

The show is gonna happen in the sweet venue of Chouquette Cafè, in Friedrichshain, and I’m gonna exhibit a new illustrated story created specially for the event.

My work focuses on the narration of empathy into people’s stories through images, that’s why for this occasion I wanted to create a story that could be narrated on the walls of a Berlin café in a natural way, as if it had always been there, a story that surrounds people silently but intensely.

Coffee Spoon is a story suspended in the time of one coffee.
Has it already happened or is it happening right now?

If you are in Berlin come to say hi, drink wine and listen the beautiful music by End of Dimension!

Illustrated Story by Chiara Ciccarello

Vernissage: 7 Dec 2018, 19-22h _ Live Music by End of Dimension from 20:30

Exhibition: 8-20 Dec 2018, 10-18h (monday closed)

Looking forward to meeting you there!

After Bologna, it’s time for working!

Two weeks have passed since Bologna Children’s Book fair.

It was a great experience and I will definitely do it again next year. I met beautiful people and I had the possibility to talk with many publishers and amazing illustrators, in particular I’m so grateful to Javier Zabala and Giovanni Manna for their advices and constructive feedback, I came back home full of energies and a clearer mind about my work, which are my strong points and what I still have to learn, of course a lot, well I think I will never stop to learn all my life, but I am ready and my motto is “NO HURRY”.

And a special thinking goes to my adventure mates, friends and great artists Daniela Spoto and Luca Di Battista, check these guys out, their work is stunning!

So now it is not the time for relaxing, I will roll up my sleeves and keep drawing.

Draw o Die!!!
