Sellvida

A multi-talented and expressive artist, Silviya Georgieva – Sellvida, brings her rich cultural and practical experience to the London art scene.

Silviya was trained and educated in Sofia, Bulgaria where she mastered textile and graphic design 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.

Silviya’s passion lays in making collages – piecing together memories and extracts of her experiences on a canvas of colours, textures and shapes. Silviya collects mental excerpts that she then puts together in a puzzle that reflects her perception of the world. Silviya views our beloved city through her positive and curious eyes – the power stations of Battersea, sunset in Fulham, a stranger’s demeanor.

Silviya is equally intrigued by the man-made and the natural – from seascapes to still life settings and Parisian rooftops, her pieces are guaranteed to leave a lasting impression with the viewer.
