Adele Ceraudo, from Cosenza by birth and roman-adopted, is better known as LADY BIC due to her ability to represent the beauty and strength of women using that famous ballpoint pen, with which she draws from childhood, even before learning to write. In her creative process, the artist generally uses multiple snapshots taken by professional photographers under her direction, from which she selects the perfect one to be used as a source of inspiration. She is renowned both in Italy and abroad, published and invited by Academies of Fine Arts and by Universities for her very special and unique “Modus Operandi “ whereby she uses herself as a medium to describe the poetry and power of women. This technique led her to exhibit at the Venice Bienniale in 2011 and in further important events. She is a performer and an exponent, as well as a creator and a designer, she works with internationally renowned photographers and also with emerging young artists.
Over the last few years her focus is on the reinterpretation, in a contemporary perspective and above all with a feminine touch, of the Greatest Masters of Italian Art as Michelangelo, Leonardo, Caravaggio and Bernini combining photography, pen drawing and high technology. Only in exceptional cases she lends herself to the production of portraits of exceptional women as a tribute to female figures who have achieved important goals in various sectors. Additionally, it is common for Adele Ceraudo to embrace and endorse, with her work, social causes, mostly but not limited, to women. She lives and works in Rome where she draws continuously, from the early morning, in her studio located in the heart of the city, in the picturesque Trastevere.
