ART IS MY TRUE PASSION IN LIFE.
NOTHING MAKES ME HAPPIER THAN PAINTING.
-- Cyn Silva.
ABOUT CYN SILVA
Her unique style utilizes large-scale canvas “to make an impact on the viewer” and when painting Landscapes, she paints en plein air (in the outdoors) allowing her to capture “the true colors of nature with the most accurate lighting on the subject matter”.
An artist since the age of 12, Cyn Silva studied private art theory with the late D. D’Ovalle of Carmel for seven years, sold original art to designers, and exhibited in fine galleries while still in high school and throughout college. She attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco where she studied architecture and graphic design setting her on the path to pursue her life-long passion to be an artist.
Cyn Silva regularly exhibits her artwork in fine galleries throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and is featured in many Bay Area estate homes including those of professional athletes. Interior designers regularly commission her work for luxury estates and companies. Her artwork is also featured as part of several Silicon Valley corporate art collections and adorns corporate showrooms, lobbies, and conference centers including those at National Semiconductor in Santa Clara.
ART IS A UNIQUE GIFT, a connection that changes the recipient, a human ability to make a difference. Art isn't a painting or even a poem, its something that any of us can do. If you interact with others, you have the platform to create something new, some things that change everything, I call that art.
Art is the opposite of trigonometry. Art never follows instructions or a manual or boss's orders. Instead, art is the very human act of creating the uncreated, of connecting with another person at a human level. Art feels risky because it is. The risk the artists takes is that you might not like it, might not be touched, that you might actually laugh at the effort. And it's these risks that lead to reward.
