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!

For this show I collaborated with a great artist, my art sensei, and last but not least my husband, Yukihiro Taguchi. We have been all around the east neighborhood of Berlin, Marzahn-Hellersdorf, drawing and shooting a stop-motion animation video, watching the city through a glass window…got curious? Come to see our short movie and installation at the exhibition!

Drawing one page every day and the first sketchbook is finished!
Check out all my daily drawings here: Diario Illustrato vol 1.
Some crazy interesting stuff comes out when you free your hand from the anxiety of doing the perfect drawing 😉
It happens always.
I take a brush and I draw whatever in the first sheet of paper I find close to me and …. TADAAN! Waoh, it’s really a nice one!
Then I try to draw it again and better, and the result? It is always worst.
That’s why the second time I want to create the perfect drawing, I try an excessive control on my hand, so that I’m scared to wrong and fail. And the final effect is artificial, not natural, bad.
What I need is to make free my drawing of the fear of not being able to make the perfect piece, I have to learn to make beautiful mistakes.
So I start an illustrated diary, full of daily sketches, doodles and scratches to feel free to draw, experiment and find a new way to put in the paper all the mess I have in my mind, but with no care.
Drawing without too much thought. That’s it.
I’m writing from my family house in Catania. I came here to visit my family because tomorrow my mother will have a medical operation and I wanted to be here to support her.
I am very happy to visit my family and my beautiful Sicily, also because now there are about 20 degrees more than Berlin… By the way every time I come here I order a bit the stuff I left here, behind me; many things go into the garbage, something has been donated and something else stays here, waiting for me to have one day a house in Berlin big enough to bring it with me.
Beside my bed there is, since always, a silver tube that once contained a bottle of Chivas whisky. I had even forgotten what was inside when today I opened it and found a bunch of old markers. Most of them are consumed and useless but, before throwing them away, I wanted to do the last drawing.
I thought about the just started winter that I will find in Berlin next week, once I will be back…
I’m writing from Brussels, I came here to visit one of my little sisters for the weekend.
I was supposed to fly yesterday back to Berlin but because of the strike of the air controller my fly was deleted so, if everything goes fine, I should fly tomorrow evening back.
Because of my vision of “everything-happen-for-a-reason”, I believe that this happened because I have to spend a bit more time wit m sister, and I’m happy for that, of course.
So while I’m here I did a portrait of her, hoping that watching it everyday will bring her colors and smiles.
