About The Artist
Born in Berkeley, California, Sonia Calderón grew up in the outer Twin Cities of Minnesota. Self taught, she began painting at the age of 5. Trained at the Art Academy in San Francisco, and Darmstadt Applied Sciences in Hessen, Germany, Calderón’s interests include fashion, design, mysteries of nature and the human experience. She currently resides in Los Angeles. Her artistic influences are several German Expressionistic painters of the 20th century as well as photographers that play with light and subliminal concepts. Her process is an exploration with color, depth, patterns, mood and a sense of place.
About The Artwork
Each lip painting tells a story, the embodiment of an experience, a song, possibility. In these intimately exposed ruminations, it is the great depth of mystery, of personal history, of secrets kept or whispered, that I wish to capture.
