Featured Artist: AmaSilyS
Notes from ‘The Art Blogger’
This post has been a long time coming. I have so much to say about this wonderful artist that I feel I am not able to actually process it all and translate my thoughts into words. I will do my best however I already know I will fall short of doing AmaSilyS true justice.
I first came across AmaSilyS work back in 2010 and I have been a fan ever since. It is her range of talents that I believe keeps me captivated. AmaSilyS has a soul born for art in all its forms, sculpture, painting, mixed media, AmaSilyS simply sees art in everything she lays her eyes and hands upon. I encourage you to visit AmaSilyS website, Facebook page and blog to take a closer look at her art work and to get to know her better. I promise you that your artistic soul will thank you again and again for the experience.

Notes About AmaSilyS:
Born in Maracay (Aragua, Venezuela), 1972.
Irremediable optimist and curious about the ‘how to make…’
Although her early artworks (Prima inspiraCtion Collection) were made when she was about 19 years, she still consider herself as emerging Visual Artist because, leaving behind a track to 16 years working in advertising, marketing, graphic design and radio production, over the last 04 years is dedicated 100 % to what she is absolutely passionate about: Being Visual Artist, Writer and Designer.
Self-taught in art. She recently completed a small collection of works in his style Toy-Art called Strong InspiraCtion (Fuerte InspiraCción) that, mostly, are wood sculptures, pyrography and painted with acrylic. Currently (2011-12) is dedicated to developing their next collection, mainly paintings: muackS!!! inspiraCtion.
Basically, she works with acrylic on canvas and wood. She uses wood as support for her paintings and for making her sculptures. Her painting technique is based on touches with the brush and sponges to create unique textures. She gives attention to each detail, her works are for to be seen and enjoyed so much closely as from a distance.
Regarding her works on furniture design, she has combined her artistic spirit with artisanal techniques to start designing and creating furniture. Her e-curvas chair is her first step into this field of design.
From 2009 she has participated in several group exhibitions in Colombia, Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga), Mexico, Norway, Australia and Korea.
‘Honestly, beyond my curiosity to find out where acrylic paints and wood can take me, beyond the personal satisfaction of knowing myself creator of… What really inspires me is that constructive sensations remain deep inside of people when they look at my works.
I believe that my soul is in charge of the inspiration… and my hands of the action… Therefore my collections have the word inspiraCtion as its surname.’
