Simona Candini Art Solo show At Alexi Era Gallery June 22

Hi My Loves,
I'm very pleased to announce my solo show with Alexi Era Gallery, (Eugene, Oregon)
The title is "UnderWater" and it's all about the deep ocean realm. But an unusual one! It's like the whole world has been submerged by the waters...You'll see beautiful mermaids floating in Rome, in front of the famous Trevi Fountain, or in Moscow, by the colorful Saint Basil Cathedral... mermaids playing with the Pisa tower, taking teir merpoodles for a walk. Merkitties and narwhals will also populate the magical scenery in a dreamy atmosphere made of pastel raimbow colors. The frames will be extra special, I like to call these "mer-frames"  :)
For sneak peeks and work in progress check out my instagram @simonacandini

The show will open on June 22 until July 17.
For info and preview please contact info(at)
Thank you!

New prints just listed in Simona Candini Art Etsy shop!

Hi All :) I hope you are enjoyng the spring and the sun!
We had some rainy days here in Bologna, but finally it looks like that the sun is back.
I do love rain actually, but I love spring for the fact that the days are getting longer again and the sun sets later. Even though I function better during the evening/night hours and I get more productive and awake, I also love the sun and the energy that it radiates. ^__^

Anyhow...I've just listed in my Etsy shop some new prints here. Check them out!  The originals are all sold and a part of private collections. I'm so thankful to have such awesome collectors and supporters. Thank you all for loving my art <3 It is thanks to you that I can keep creating!

Much Love

It was a Moleskine kind of night....
you know... these nights you can't sleep and all your ghosts come to pay a long visit to you.

I had to stop painting for my new commission and let the pencil guide me.

Drawing without thinking can be so much therapeutic.

NEW ORIGINAL OIL PAINTING AVAILABLE + NEW! Merchandise on Redbubble * Modified Watches+ NEW Website

Hi everyone!
I've been so busy lately and couldn't update my blog/newsletter as often as usual, so in this post I'm going to present a little recap of the latest news. So... Ready? :)
Ok... first of all I've just completed a new original oil painting on canvas for the show at La Bodega Gallery in San Diego CA! The show is titled "Venus" and it's an all women exhibition.
I've created this beautiful hand painted frame and I've applied pearls and beads onto it and it's so lovely and matching the artwork in the perfect way like I wanted.
The painting features a lovely purple haired mermaid, dressed with a fancy embroidered dress, and sitting on a carousel unicorn seahorse, floating in the sky. The mermaid is holding a Venice "Gondola" boat in which there's a lucky boy who has just been rescued from a giant octopus by our mermaid, who doesn't look too impressed by him anyway... LOL


More news: I've just opened my Redbubble shop and I'm adding new designs weekly! I'm offering mugs, pillows, clocks, phone cases, tote bags an a lot of other cool items all 100% Redbubble beautiful quality warranted!
Check out CandiniDesigns on redbubble here!

Also, I've had the honour to partner with Modified Watches team to create my own line of watches! I really love these, so many colors and combinations! Check my new watches here at Modify Watches!

Last, but not least for this post, I've a NEW WEBSITE! Yeeeeey! Finally, I had the chance to work on my website and I've created completely a new one! I think it turned out very clear to browse and easy, simple and elegant and I did my best to include most of my works, organized not chronologically, but in themed galleries, to have all my series well organized. As you know I have some series that I've started years ago, but that are ongoing so I thought it was nicer to proceed in this way. I'm accepting any suggestion that can help improve my new website! I still have to add a few things here and there, but I can say that it's pretty much completed. I want to do a giveaway involving my new websites as soon as I will get the chance ^__^ Here's the link

That's all for today my friends!

Have a wonderful week and much love from yours truly! <3

New custom designer toy available and showcased at upcoming London Toycon!

Hi everyone! :) I hope you had a great Easter and a nice time to relax with your friends and family.
I eat a whole egg already and all this chocolate gave me lots of fuel to complete some works LOL including the toy that I'm customizing for the upcoming London Toycon!

Here are the picture of "The Guardian Of The Crystals" which is made from the Baby Colossus created by Tomodachi Island. It was already lovely as a blank vinyl toy!

I've painted all with acrylics and sealed with varnish. I've given also a little tribute to my beloved My Little Ponies which I collect ;) it was fun to paint them so super tiny on the back of the toy.

Then I've added a wood base, which I've decorated with beads and I've applied some beautiful fluorite natural crystals which are powerful and energetic and I really love them especially for their beautiful colors that span from purple to green.

The artwork will be showcased at the Toycon, but you can send inquiries to Aaron of Martian Toys here 

Have a fantastic day my lovelies and I'll be back soon with some more news that I haven't shared here in my blog/newsletter yet <3

Two New Prints listed in Simona Candini Art Etsy Shop

Hi my darlings,
tonight I've had the chance to update my Etsy shop already with my two newest artworks
"Deep Sea Beauties" and "Little Gingers". The originals are sold, but of course I've made the limited edition prints ;)

I had so much fun using for a change a different color palette, on white paper for the mermaid and unicorn illustration, which turned out very girly and sweet. I've created this for a make-up company that will use the image for packaging and advertising their make-up line. Maybe I will create more artworks using these cheerful rainbow colors. I hope that you like how it turned out!

You can find my prints here

Much love to you <3

New prints in Simona Candini Etsy Shop!

I was meaning to write a news post with the link to my Etsy shop for the purchase of my two newest Valentine paintings, but when I was going to press enter with the whole article written, the paintings were already gone! (Congratulations and many thanks to the two sweet ladies who just adopted my dolls!). Anyhow, tonight I've added immediately the prints in my shop, so in case you missed the original you can still get a lovely limited edition, signed and numbered by me and professionally printed on a museum quality super thick paper. If you hjaven't already tried out one of my prints, well you won't regret it, I promise. ;)

I feel like to remind that if you purchase a print with economy shipping today, it will take around 4 weeks to be delivered internationally, so they won't arrive in time for Valentine day, unless you ask for expedited shipping, which is more expensive. These will look great on display all year long anyway. We should be in Love all year long, right? In Love with Life, with ourselves, with our passions, with our pets, with the friends and family that everyday stay close to us and show us their support and affection, right? Love is not just a Valentine day thing ;)
