ABOUT THE ARTIST

 

Sylwia Smoron was born in Poland. At the age of three, she and her parents fled as political refugees to Switzerland. She spent her childhood there, graduated from high school and later studied economics. Several long stays abroad in London, Poland, Australia, Thailand and New York followed and over a decade in the financial industry shaped her career. But the creative arts have accompanied her since her early years.


In 2017, she decided to fully concentrate on her creative calling: abstract art and photography. As an advocate of the formalism she creates artworks that use those formalistic elements, play with contrasts and emphasize her originality. Emotionalism is another key element of Sylwia’s work as she wants to arouse strong emotions and create a wow-effect on the observer. Her vocation is a special form of commissioned art, a creative process where she designs and creates individual, unique artworks for private collectors and corporate clients. In a symbiotical collaboration Sylwia transforms their ideas and needs onto the canvas using her creative eye, her techniques and her artistic style. You can find her art in numerous private and corporate collections.

Sylwia holds several certificates and diplomas - ranging from art, design to photography - and she has exhibited in various national and international shows and art fairs. She is a mother of two and lives with her family in Dietlikon, a small town near Zurich, where she also has her studio.
