About Sylvia


In her art, Sylvia explores themes of beauty, sexual provocation, and social notions of femininity juxtaposed against the dystopian reality of modern cities to create highly charged paintings of women. Some of her paintings are symbolic reflections of herself, portraits of people she knows or just nameless faces set in a landscape of fleeting and decaying beauty.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands artist

"Her feminane portraits with the use of Dia de los Muertos imagery combined with is native and cultural infuances is very strong. It captures themes and influances that tips a broad palette from renanisance, beauty, decay, delicacy to passion. The strong use of cadre and editorial fashion poses is very appealing and demands attention. It portrais strength but also the fragility and powerfull sensual notes of feminity. Appealing use of primary colour is supportive to her very powerful, strong, seductive and sensual painted portraits."
