When light is imminent, darkness gets irritated
Sailev is a French artist based in France and Hong-Kong. First a biologist, he left his business career to diverge from the corporate world and spend all his time to art.
Sailev finds inspiration in the surrounding nature and in human societies, during discovery trips or directly from the news. His poetic yet provocative visions of the world are displayed in a dreamlike universe where he combines psychedelic constructions and the use of symbolism and humor to create several layers of interpretation to his works.
Sailev promotes eco-art and socially engaged art through several groups and platforms. He is member of the international non-profit Artists For Conservation (AFC) that gathers artists from more than 30 countries who are committed to conservation. Sailev also contributes to the Millennium Alliance for Humanity and the Biosphere MAHB of the Stanford University, the New-York based Eco Art Project, and the american artist collective For Mother Nature. He is also an adjudicator of the IYACC - International Youth Art Cultural Center.
Each artwork is linked to a specific NGO and sales include a donation.
