Sonia Calderón was born in Berkeley, California and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. There she started exploring with her artistic side at a young age. Climates and being ethnically mixed play a yin and yang, sensual and mysterious role in most of her work. Calderón’s interests include fashion, design, mysteries of nature and the human experience. Her artistic influences are several abstract expressionistic painters of the 20th century, street photographers which focus on glam and guilty pleasures. She lives in Los Angeles.
