2019 daSilva Fine Art Exhibition Schedule Announcement
A huge & heartfelt "Thank You" to my friends at Root'd Home in Park City, Ut for featuring my artwork on their "Meet the Maker" blog series. I am thrilled and honored to be a part of such a dynamic, talented and generous community. Read the full story HERE
Can you guess how many of the following 21 images are real paintings?
My new series of paintings is inspired by rust, peeling paint, abandoned buildings, ripped jeans, torn newspaper, and many surfaces found in nature. I am fascinated by creating paintings that look like they have been left outside to be exposed to the elements and the passing of time.
We all have an internal compass. Following that compass isn't always easy, but it will always take us exactly where we need to be. My unique contribution is creating paintings I am passionate about, and teaching others how art making can be a vehicle for empowerment. Shop the Collection
Writing my own artist biography has always been incredibly challenging for me. How do I write objectively so that I account for my achievements without sounding like a conceited jerk? How do I summarize the past 10 years without writing a long-winded novel?
My new artist biography marks the beginning of a new chapter. I thank my lucky stars for my brother Lucas, who helped me put into words a narrative far better than I could have done myself.
I am thrilled to announce that daSilva Fine Art Studio has arrived! You are cordially invited to attend the Grand Opening on Friday, April 19 from 6:30-9pm.
Happy day! After 7 different art studios since our move to the Big Island of Hawaii in 2016 (I kid you not, I’ve done the math 3 times), I am thrilled to announce that daSilva Fine Art has found a permanent home in Salt Lake City, Utah!
This is nothing short than a dream come true for me, and I can’t begin to express how thankful I am for the people that have encouraged & supported us during this extremely transitional time in our lives.
Stay tuned for our upcoming Grand Opening event, new workshop announcements, FearLESS retreats, and the fact that my earnings get larger with the passing of each year.
This project was a little bit different than the usual.. I painted on a wall instead of a canvas! Since I was painting on wallpaper (a commission for a client in Park City) I had to use special paint and custom made rollers. The entire job took about 19 hours.
I finally got the chance to attend the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. I always thought it would be as a spectator, but sometimes our dreams come to life in unexpected ways. Today I got to take part in the festivities doing some live painting inside my favorite store on Main Street: Root'd Home with my paintings hanging on the walls. Happy day!
This blog was created to share my belief that the art making process can be a vehicle for empowerment.
I am living proof.
