Born in Lisbon in 1979, from an early age begins her contact with the artistic Portuguese environment with renowned artists such as Artur Bual, Paulo Ossião, António Neves, Manuel Cardoso Lima, among others. Her passion increases with the constant visits to the studios of the plastic artists developing there a more critical view of the works and absorbing each of their figurative, gestural and abstraction influences.
Then she focused on more critical view on the works, leaving for later, her openness to her own creativity.
A self-taught painter that began to make her works in 2008, passionate about colour and criteria simplicity, she managed to find in her works the attempt to create life forms, in the most distinct situations, with restless movements coming from her imagination, imaginary cities and a lot of relaxation that is clear in her works.
With her volumetric painting filled with worldly figures, she leads the viewer to enter the most genuine and often childish world of each of us, each creation is considered by her as a gratitude to each plastic artist that she met and led her to expose her creativity and passion on a blank canvas.
Sillva dominates the canvas, in the cool as well as in the warm shades that can be seen in the bright and colourful marinas and in the frenzy of the city. She recently began adding a three-dimensional element to each canvas to further express her vibrant and cheerful life on each one.
When we are faced with a set of works by Sillva, it seems to us that she wants to make them noticeable and, at the same time, celebrate the mythical moment of painting, she embraces pictorial action with a great technical quality to revisit, or even question with concern to our time, the painting inside her own language. Aware that painting is "to become real", and that the painting makes it sensitive, she thus demonstrates how much our dependence on the image and what surrounds us is essential.
Her work makes you think in the daily life that uses three-dimensionality, but demanding the presence of a message in her works. "It doesn't matter how painting is applied as long as something is said" (Jackson Pollock).
She often puts the viewer in front of a great frenzy of vibrant colours and clear surfaces, while involving him in a total environment of pleasure before the painting, remembering what Matisse wanted: "an art of balance, of purity, of tranquility, without a disturbing or worrying subject ".
Her work jumps off the canvas in an enthralling way, as playing with gravity, where the elements come to life, much to the delight of those who contemplate them.
