Belinha's Biography

My Story

Belinha Silva_edited.jpg

Art is my essential food of soul.

I was born in Lisbon and left Portugal as a very young child to live in various European countries.

That’s why my artwork reflects my multicultural background. Currently, I'm back to Portugal.

I’m a self-taught painter that has always had an enormous passion for art and

couldn’t escape in my life from creating.

In Brussels, in 2005, when I attended for the first time artistic courses, I have had The Revelation of my life by understanding my real artistic potential, the irresistible desire to develop it and the punch to express myself artistically. Since then, I draw, paint in acrylic, watercolor and oil,

paint on porcelain, as well as on silk,

I sculpt and create jewelry.

I work always according to the inspirations and feelings of the moment, linked to a socio-cultural, historical, sentimental or personal context, rather than influenced by a specific painter.

I have my optimistic own art style,

which is a universe of its own, with a mixture of allegorical subjects, surrealistic, pop 'art,

optical art, abstract and figurative art, resulting in obtaining

simply a Contemporary Art Style.

In my creations, you can feel my perfectionism, because for me, Art imposes a technique that brings together various processes, such as discipline, practice and knowledge. My experience taught me that you need, in order to create, passion, innate skill, strong sensitivity and know-how, which is not only theoretical, but, above all, practical.

I think that for an art creator it’s important to search into herself in order to find that

little something, that remains to be discovered in Art.

This is exactly what I did by inventing a mixed technique "Painted Porcelain & Acrylic on canvas".

By this way, I become the precursor of the porcelain modernization, by giving it

a new life, being avant-gardism and contemporary, 

assuring porcelain a place in Contemporary Art Galleries and obtaining

unique, innovative and inimitable paintings.

As a result in recognition of those artworks, I was awarded by various International Art Awards, like you can see afterwards in my ‘Awards’.

My principal goal is to continue developing my techniques in order to creat my art and, in the same time,

to touch the sensitivity of my public.

Therefore, I hope that my paintings brighten up your live and that you enjoy viewing them,

as much as I enjoy creating them…
