Mia Calderone, an artist based-in New York, creates ink and graphite drawings bursting with emotional expressions of pain, sorrow and love. Her work seems to portray the vibrant narratives of women’s weaknesses and strengths. Otherwise, the artwork, which has a tone of surrealism, could only be described as… simple and unpretentious yet gorgeous and sexy!
