Octopus Garden by Sylvie DelpyARTM43220
SHORT ARTIST BIO
I am French. I paint, I meditate, I practice yoga, I travel but most of all I love to feel connected with people and culture. My paintings were initially inspired by haute couture fabric and jewelry. I started my creative journey by studying art in Bordeaux and Paris, and eventually worked closely with various artists in Paris. Later, I branched out and studied photography in the 90s while living in NYC. A big part of my upbringing as an artist came from the long travels in Asia, India, Africa & Nepal, where I immersed myself into their lifestyle, tradition and rich culture. I was fascinated by the beauty of the fabric which goes beyond a choice of color, texture and pattern as it represents centuries of customs, hope, faith and survival. When I paint, I am transcended to a time, a place and a feeling that connects my soul to the beauty of that moment. Now, I split my time between my studio in Hawaii and Oregon where my paintings continue to be my passion.
