On Friday Thinkspace will be celebrating 5 years of being one of LA’s coolest contemporary galleries, and they are opening a group show with 48 artists that represent their past, present and future. The show is simply called the V Year Anniversary Show.
This is my painting, called “Where the Wild Things Squirm”. It’s Helmetgirl and tentacle goodness! It’s 16 x 20, oils on wood panel, and framed. Interested in buying the original? Email Andrew Hosner: firstname.lastname@example.org. For this show, Thinkspace interviewed all the artists with 5 questions, and mine are here.
’5 Years / 5 Questions’ with Camilla d’Errico
What were you doing back in 2005 when Thinkspace started?
I was studying Illustration and Graphic Design at Capilano College in Vancouver, BC. Living for the first time away from my family and friends hatching a new path for myself. I started showing in galleries and found my passion in art.
Name 5 things you can’t live without in your studio?
Music. My Mac. Anime figures. Grapes. Art books and manga.
Where do you hope to be 5 years from now?
Hopefully my series Helmetgirls will be in full swing and I’ll be drawing that feverishly, along with Tanpopo and a whole world of figures and possibly producing my first anime. In five years from now I also hope to be living 4 months of the year in South East Asia in a remote little village, painting the days away, creating paintings that really re-inspire me!
What have you got coming up in 2011?
The release of my art book published by Dark Horse Deluxe and a toy line. I’ll be illustrating a fantasy graphic novel with a French publisher and a comic book for Spanish singer Monica Naranjo. As for paintings I’ll be doing a few very select group shows and working on a new body of paintings for Opera Gallery in New York.
I won’t be at the opening, but would highly recommend to anyone to go to this show if you can!
