Italian based pop surreal painter Simona Candini created an exclusive collection of new work for PIQ of her favorite complex women that will hang from 09/29-10/12.  Applying her signature theme of the light vs. dark and meticulous painting style, Simona selected her favorite pop culture hero and villains to express the power of femininity. The show features ten original paintings, six oils and four mixed treatment watercolors. Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Danerys, and all of her ladies show confidence, conflict, and a fighting spirit in their large expressive eyes. 

To compliment the details and energy of each canvas, Simona hand painted one-of-a-kind ornate frames that become part of the story of each subject. In addition to the original paintings there will be six more pop heroines in limited edition glicee canvas prints. The show opens 6:00 Friday Sept 29 at PIQ Grand Central Terminal and will continue through October 12

Preview the show at, where Simona Candini's paintings will be available for sale starting the 28th at 7:00pm.

About Simona Candini

Her works, showcased in galleries around the globe, embody a beautiful yet sometimes dark world inhabited by big eyed girls and improbable creatures.
