Artur Silva

Creative Renewal Arts Fellow - In 1999, the Arts Council of Indianapolis, with generous support from the Lilly Endowment, established the Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship program. Originally conceived as a renewal opportunity similar to an academic sabbatical, this groundbreaking initiative offers mid-career artists and arts administrators the opportunity to renew and refresh their creativity. In it's 9th round, the fellowship offers 30 artists and arts administrators $10,000 for an 18 month fellowship period.

“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

About My Work:

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.
