Welcome to the soft and surreal world of Nicoletta Ceccoli. We just received an email from the CoproGallery letting us know about the web preview to Nicoletta’s show. Starting November 7th, 2009, the CoproGallery will present Nicoletta Ceccoli’s, “Babes in Toyland.” The show will take you to “a land where classic fairy tales meet 16th Century Flemish paintings, a place where Snow White and Alice in Wonderland-like doll-girls and their toys live amongst a magical forest of lollipops and candy.”
Ceccoli’s lifetime love and passion for children’s picture books came full circle when her first works were published in 1997. Since then, Ciccoli has earned numerous awards including the Andersen prize Baia Delle Favole. and in 2006, a Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators in New York. Ceccoli currently lives and works as a full-time book illustrator in the republic of San Marino, Italy.
Love how Nicoletta manages to keep the color palette soft while expressing a subtly dark side to surreal pop art.
