BIO

Erika Calesini was born in Morciano di Romagna, Italy in 1974.

Driven by her great passion for fashion, she graduated from “Istituto Statale d’Arte, F. Mengaroni” in Pesaro, specializing in “Fashion and Costume Design”.
After that, she continued her studies at “Istituto Secoli” in Bologna, becoming a Fashion Designer.

In 1994 she started to collaborate with prestigious fashion and design companies. At last, she decided to create her own clothing and fashion accessories brand, called “Accessori di Erika” and sold in Italy’s most famous stores.

In 2005, with the help of her father who was a skilled iron smith, she tried to bend iron with the aim to create objects from ferrous waste material, giving them a new soul. A work of art appeals to our senses and evokes emotions: that’s when her work of art “Albero di Luce” was born.

Erika Calesini reinvented her artistic path choosing art as a starting point to reveal her creative spirit.
Since the beginning of her career, her works of art formed part of individual and group exhibitions, art galleries, museums, private and public spaces gaining great recognition.

For Erika Calesini art is not just a simple expression of her mind: commitment, research and recycling provide the basis on which she creates works of art embodying feelings and passion with an attentive eye on sustainability.

This is her art of “Creative Recycling” – something in between irony and environmental sensitivity.
