All the eggs in the basket decide to turn black like Calimero, putting a stop to individual discrimination. We are all Calimero; therefore, no one is a Calimero. A hymn to the pride of being Calimero is a step towards a fundamental awareness of feeling part of a whole.

Riccardo Bonfadini's work was selected as part of Arcus Pride 2020, the Virtual Art Pride Art exhibition in Italy curated by Patrizia Madau from Tallulah Studio Art Milan. The selected artworks concurrently aim to unveil the artists' intimate vision of transformation and change and reiterate their contribution to support the LGBT community.

1971 Cremona, Italy

Riccardo Bonfadini was born in Cremona in 1971.

He approaches art by following his father, a famous artist, who taught him that art lives and develops through the way of thinking.

His artworks express our contemporaneity through the constant use of objects, which are often presented to the audience in an ironic way. His artworks are therefore the result of a never-ending conversation with contemporary society, where any object can become a piece of art, if we are able to grasp the meaning beyond tangible things. His creations become small rebuses to be solved: everyday objects acquire new vitality through their combinations, while their literary assonance becomes fertile soil for the construction of new funny neologisms.

A series of activities mark his artistic path: the first figurative artworks, the “geometric period”, the “new writing”, the creation of “Industrial Fossil”, a series of “Wash” (washing machines), the “ironic installations”, the “posters”, the “artworks by chance” and in closing the “big installations”. In 2007 Riccardo Bonfadini wins the Arts and Culture award in Milan; in 2008 he is invited to exhibit his artworks in the European Parliament in Strasbourg. In 2010 he participates in Art Basel Miami Beach fair in the United States. In 2012 he wins the “Premio internazionale Ora 2012” (international award). In 2014 he receives the “Premio Nocivelli”. In 2015 he is a finalist in the “Premio Internazionale Ghidoni” (International Ghidoni Award). He has participated not only in Italy, but also abroad in collective art exhibitions and solo art shows. Riccardo lives and works in Soresina, near Cremona in the north of Italy.
