Artist Simona Candini is graduated at the Academy Of Fine Arts University of Bologna
and she is currently based in Italy.
Her works, showcased in galleries around the globe, embody a beautiful yet sometimes dark world inhabited by big eyed girls and improbable creatures. With a stirring of emotions translated onto each new work of art, Simona brings her love of the old fairytales and childhood imaginings to us in a unique and poetic way. She is a traditional artist and enjoys using oils, watercolor, acrylics, graphite and pencils on paper, canvas and wood boards. Simona hand paints and personalize most frames to match her artworks and to make them unique as her art.

What is the best thing that I love about my work? My work gives me the chance to connect with people to a deeper level. When my collectors tell me that they relate with my work, are moved by it, or when they tell me that my art is somehow helping them out at an emotional level, helping them overcoming depression, or bearing the pain, that’s what I love the most about my work. Most of my paintings are very personal and speaks about my feelings, so this is a “virtuous circle”, where art is a therapy for both who makes it and who receives it. I think that every form of art, as a pure act of creation, is a little miracle. (Read more)
<<Italian-born artist Simona Candini embraces the darkness. Merging her love for manga and the Japanese aesthetic with the Italian masters that influenced her so heavily growing up, the result creates a dream-like image with a sinister undertone. Bringing together fairy tale elements and childlike imaginings to her canvas, she has recently started to translate her style to platform toys with great success>>
