Sellvida

 

Visual Artist Silviya Georgieva -Sellvida was trained and educated in Sofia, Bulgaria where she mastered textile at National Art Academy and graphic design at New Bulgarian University at the country’s most prominent art and design universities. An artist himself, Silviya’s father nurtured her artistic side from an early age and raised her in a highly creative and inquisitive environment. Sellvida is a sensitive and very conscious artist, reflecting on her own experiences and observations as a woman and a mother. 

She is very conscious of the impact of living in a fast-paced technology world and feels that she is a contemporary representative of the new urban society, again, portraying this in her work. Her rich and expressive art collection comprises still-life paintings in watercolour, pastel and collage abstracts, as well as collages, portraits and beautiful urban stories. Her pieces often carry a sensual flamenco flavour and tens of meters of hand-painted silk are owned by her customers in Europe, Australia and the United States. Sellvida’s trademark, however, remains the collage, dominating most of her recent exhibitions in popular galleries around London, where she has been living and painting for the last few years. She portrays the urban storylines in such an intriguing and exciting way that she always manages to touch even the most delicate audience. Her compositions are full of ease, colour and positive emotions, making the viewer sink in an abundance of materials, fine patterns and textures. Silviya Georgieva is a representative of the young generation of artists, who reflect today’s culture in their art, teaching us valuable lessons in beauty and sensuality with every piece they create.
Over the past ten years, her artworks have been exhibited in many galleries, primarily in London. Sellvida’s art is now present across Europe as well as in the US, Canada and Australia.

Art during pandemic competition

Some of my new artwork during the lockdown in London, UK was selected from the art team in The Washington Post story, which shows the 20 best artworks created during the pandemic. More than 650 works took part in the selection.

Sellvida’s painting, published in the American edition, is entitled “A Quiet Place”.

“My collage is inspired by and created during, the lockdown in London. This is me. My kid made a photo of me in the window when it was not possible to go out, and basically, this was our hope and connection with the world, nature, surroundings. After that, I was inspired to make my vision of this lovely photo. I’m a visual artist and a mum, and it is really important to express my feelings.”, shares Selvida.
