Sylvia Batycka

Sylvia Batycka
Born in Kraków, Poland.
Lives and works in London.

Sylvia inclines to painting and drawing practice, however she works across wide range of media, originating personal means of expression through applying both traditional and innovative techniques. She works both from observation and reference pictures, altering the image, exploring transition from representational forms into the abstract ones. The themes of her work evolve around female identity, sexuality, urban environment seen as an entity, and their possible interactions. Sylvia is absorbed with both ends of vitality – decay spectrum and placing her artistic subjects on those peripheries.

Sylvia currently does not hold a formal art degree (although she has been broadly educated). Largely self taught she has been mentored by established artists.

She had a number of group exhibitions in London.
