Silvia Papas

Born in 1969 - Italy


Silvia Papas, is an Italian artist born in Conegliano, Italy in 1969, she lives and works in Padoue.

After completing her studies at the School of Art of Padua, she started a career in fashion, set design and poster designer. The visual suggestions of these domains and those evoked by her frequent trips to the USA as well as a particular interest for pop art, are all elements of aesthetic inspiration for Silvia Papas, who decided to devote exclusively to her pictorial research in 1993.

Since the beginning, seductive female characters parade the surfaces of her canvases, chromatically attractive and colorful. By using a gray spectrum and chromatic episodes, the women represented become masters of seduction. The apparent luminosity of their life and the unpredictable solitudes and dependencies emerge.
Silvia Papas's women become bright forefront of a destabilised society for their own good. Symbols of consumerism, as well as ideological clashes germinate on the margins, leaving visible traces between the halls and the walls of the modern cities, but the protagonist dont loose their power to seduce.

Between 2002 and 2004, Silvia Papas associated with Ekatherina Savtchenko, Marika Lang and Kana Otofuji, to create a group called " 4 Women group" an artistic training group for females with multicultural expression and characterized by confrontation and protagonist of a series of exhbitions in Italy and abroad.

Papa exhibits her works regularly in Italy, Spain, Norway, Austria and the United States.
