Gaby Silva Bavio was born in La Plata, Argentina. Her main influences are the Impressionist and the Expressionist movements. Currently she resides in Chicago.
I like to show all that inspires me in my art, things that range from everyday experiences, simple observations, to deeper feelings. I think that in my paintings you can see emotions such as love and anger, captured in different shapes, strong colors, and vibrant movements and textures. I obtained different textures using a variety of materials, some organic such as sand and soil, others like newspaper in collage and mixed media in general. I enjoy playing with lights, shapes and colors, both in my figurative paintings as well as in the non-figurative ones. I have lot of fun painting, but I the same time I really want to express my feelings; I believe you can see my inner thoughts in them.
