“I’m interested in manipulating images collected from all facets of the media and from photographs I take. I reproduce the selected images on canvas or combine them in digital prints, wall installations and videos, transforming and appropriating them to convey a particular set of ideas.” – Silva
Silva describes his work as an ongoing study of western iconography. With the use of icons, he intends to point out the directions society chooses in who is idolized. The images are collected from the media in general and juxtaposed in a deconstructive manner with vibrant colors.
