Camilla d’ Errico

November 27, 2017 by Laura Gomez


 

Camilla d’Errico is an Italo-Canadian artist who has been making waves in the fine art and comic industries with her manga-influenced style. Ever the prolific artist, Camilla is comic artist/creator and Pop Surrealist painter, while also contributing to the vinyl art toy movement, and expanding her style into fashion, accessories, toys and other merchandise.

Camilla is excited to announce her next Solo Exhibition at Corey Helford Gallery, opening April 7, 2018. This show’s collection is themed around unity and diversity, inspired by the Italian expression, “We all live under the same sky.” Camilla is looking forward to sharing a new body of artwork depicting figures of many backgrounds and cultures, woven together with her signature pop surrealist style.

 


 

Camilla resides in Vancouver, BC, where she paints and draws comics, and more recently has been working with entertainment companies on feature films and videogames. She has distinguished herself through her ability to seamlessly weave comic art and manga with surrealist elements, wrapping it all together with an extensive emotional palette. Thanks to her relentless energy, dedication, and creativity, she has followed her dream of successfully working creatively for a living.

“I find joy in angst – in shape and in form, in color and in texture – and in the embodiment of passion. I love capturing the tension, the drama, and the unrest in people’s faces and showing them a reflection of their own deep seated emotions. It is about expressing what they feel and feeling what they express.”
Camilla d’Errico

Where does Camilla get her inspiration from? How does she come up with her ideas? Camilla says she’s inspired by a lot of things, from other art and music, to words and patterns that catch her interest. Sometimes she gets a part of an idea for a detail or colour, and builds a piece around that. She feels her work is very interpretive and emotional, and that it’s neat when a piece means different things to different people. What do you see in her work?

What kind of paint does Camilla use? Camilla prefers Holbein Aqua Duo paints, which are a water soluble oil paints. She often uses these paints on wooden panels for her colour pieces, and acrylics and inking pens on canvas. Some pieces Camilla draws by hand, and then colours digitally on her computer.
