ABOUT THE ARTIST

Sailev is a French artist based in France and Hong-Kong.

Born in 1982, he was first a biologist, then a business executive. He left the corporate world to dedicate his entire time to art and his ideals.




 
INSPIRATION

Sailev finds his inspiration in the beauty of nature that he explores and in the human societies he experienced.

His artworks showcase some of the most pressing challenges of our time: from the impact of human activities on nature and the climate to the consequences of geopolitical conflicts.

Sailev's poetic yet provocative visions of the world are displayed in a dreamlike universe where he combines hyper-surrealism and the use of symbols to create several layers of interpretation. 

' When you love something you want to protect it '

ECO-ART & SOCIALLY ENGAGED ART

Through artistic expression, Sailev wants to draw more public attention on environmental issues and stimulate positive change. His poetic reminders inspire, question and provoke to invite the viewers reflect on their agency and actions in the world.

Channeling the power of art to stimulate the sense of contribution of the art enthusiasts is the basis of engaged art, making engagement not only part of the message but the aesthetic of the artworks themselves.

All Sailev's artworks are linked to NGOs in connection with the theme of the artwork. Part of the sales of originals is donated to the NGO.
