Artist Info

Erika Sanada is California based artist and her early inspirations stemmed from creatures and characters of dark films. Watching films were way of escaping from her bitter childhood. She creates hairless ceramic creatures and they are often adorable, but also has bizarre shape. Her artwork has been published in Hi-Fructose Magazine, Hey! Magazine and Beautiful Bizarre Magazine.

 

"My work reflects the weird and the creepy. I am fascinated with the dark side.

In my current body of work, “Odd Things,” I’m using the ceramic medium to create my bizarre creatures. My animals have something odd such as extra body parts, connecting with other animals, and white eyes. Clay allows me to create what’s in my head. These animals with their small deformities help me express my sensitive side. A troubled childhood and constant “life” anxieties are all expressed in “Odd Things.” 

Beautiful and disturbing are terms I hear when people talk about my work and I love that these two terms are not often used together."
