SylT

My artistic work is very much rooted in nature and influenced by the essence of its femininity. My inspiration is therefore a combination of nature's bountiful beauty and my vision of womanhood as reflected in our humanity. - SylT

Combining the tangible and digital worlds, SylT finds his inspiration in both the beauty of the natural world and its feminine psyche.  Through a process that begins in the digital realm and ends with the artist’s careful hand, SylT's images are transformed into hypnotic, ephemeral portraiture.

SylT lives and works in Montreal. Print designer by day and autodidact painter, SylT explores color, texture and beauty through his vibrant collaged portraiture. There are two parts to his creative process. The artist begins by finding and photographing natural forms, shapes, textures and colours that catch his eye. He then selects a striking female to be his muse, either a strong contemporary woman, a fashion icon or a remarkable historical figure.

Sylt creates arresting, mixed media, portraits that demand the viewers’ attention, employing an array of digital applications to add motion and depth to his portraits. Then, taking a more traditional artistic approach to his work, he uses acrylic and aerosol paints, mixed media and collaging techniques, and finally, on occasion, paint stripper to alter and enhance the physical and visual properties of his works.
