Biography

Zica Bérgami
[Elisa Campiotti]
1913, Ibitinga | SP - 2011, São Paulo | SP

Dona Zica Bergami, close to his 90th birthday, still showed great vitality and enjoyed good conversation.
For a long time she performed well and presented an excellent work in several exhibitions, revealing an unmistakable way of drawing with China ink. She had several stories to tell from the good old times in the countryside, of a shiny past in the capital of São Paulo. Her first individual exhibition had a presentation by Sérgio Milliet. Later she would be reviewed and stimulated by the art critic Ernestina Karmann.
In 1959, she received the award Zequinha de Abreu for the song-writing “Lampião de gás”.
She accomplished several exhibitions in galleries in Brazil and abroad, among them I Mostra Contemporânea Brasileira – EXPOFAIR – in Lisbon and First Art Exposition Brazil-Holland, in Amsterdam.
In her drawings there is clear candid view for human situations, with a result which reaches universality through her pure black traces in the whiteness of the paper.
