my berlin Artist studio upgrade!

I am so happy to share with you great news of this just started 2022:
my Berlin artist studio is getting bigger!

This year I had the fortune to enlarge my creative spot at our magic shared artists atelier Studio 4, in Friedrichshain, Berlin. Now I have an extra wall that opens a lot of new possibilities!
I know for someone having one more wall just 2x3m wide may look not that big improvement, but for me is such a blessing! Before that, I have played crazy Tetris with all my art supplies, stock of prints, packaging, and artworks, and now everything has finally found its place.

And together with my studio mate Marnie, we have made little but excellent upgrades: cleaned up the window, painted the facade and, last but not least, put up new wonderful window curtains, bleached and dyed by our Studio4 gal and great tattooist Delia of Both Worlds Tattoo (check her stunning and unique work).  
Love our new curtain, it makes the entrance so cozy! 
Furthermore, it allows us to have a little more privacy. Don’t take me wrong, we love to have the studio on the street side and the direct contact with the people passing by but, you know, also artists sometimes need privacy 😉

I have so many new ideas about my new studio spot!
Curious? Here are just a few examples:

  • Open Studio and Exhibition once per season (the first one arrives with Spring, more details coming very soon!)
  • The little portrait corner, so when you will come to my studio to pose for a portrait, we will have our privacy
    (you can find my custom portraits catalog on my online shop)
  • Creative meetings, to re-connect each other and share thoughts, inspiration, and revolutionary visions
  • Paint bigger, babe! Yes, I always wanted to paint people in full-scale!
    Wanna be one of the first to be painted in big?

And that’s everything for now.
I will leave you with some pics of the studio I’m proud of.
Stay tuned for being updated on events and news about our studio life!

Kikkake vol.2 – okinawa theater show

animation and scenography by Chiara Ciccarello

At the end of 2021, I was honored to be part of Kikkake vol.2, a great theatrical piece at Garaman Hall in Ginoza (Okinawa, Japan), for which I have created the scenography using frame by frame digital animation.
Like many other art and theater projects, our show has been postponed several times because of the pandemic. I was supposed to take part in 2 months artist residency organized by Garaman Hall in Ginoza, but in the end, the regulation to enter Japan from abroad was too strict, and I worked on the project from Berlin.

Thanks to the excellent team of performers, actors, musicians, and technicians, the show was a great success.
Congratulation to all the members of the team!
I hope we will meet again soon on your beautiful island, Okinawa.

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!

RHEIN GAWA Project Completed

My residency in Ginoza is finished and I’m back to Berlin.

It was such an intense experience and I learned so much, I had the chance to work on a huge theater project ad met great artist and people that I will never forget, I had 2 workshop with the children of the primary school in Ginoza and I’m so thankful because they teached me so much and remember me to keep watching the world with amazed eyes. I also had 2 exhibition, one in Ginoza and one in Naha.

It was lot of work, but I’m so glad I had this opportunity and I would do it again 100 times.

Thanks so much to all the people of Garaman Hall and Rheinbilder project, you all will have always a special place in my heart.

Okinawa see you soon again!
