Camilla d’Errico’s Doe-Eyed Pop Surrealism
You’re probably more familiar with Camilla d’Errico‘s work than you realize. She’s published three graphic novels (Tanpopo, BURN, Sky Pirates of Neo Terra), has Helmetgirl t-shirts available at Hot Topic, and has exhibited her work at several galleries. Her most recent gallery opening is a 2-person show at Cotton Candy Machine with fellow pop surrealist Hikari Shimoda. Called Niji Bambini, which means “rainbow children,” her pieces speak to that inner child within us that still wishes for an all-marshmallow box of Lucky Charms cereal. Sure her work is bright and innocent, but there’s something more lurking behind the glassy stares of her subjects. From doe-eyed girls to manga-like heroines, these new pieces from d’Errico show off her familiar style while adding a touch of human emotion.
