About the Artist - Sylviane Canini

Sylviane Canini, born in 1954 in Paris, is a French artist known for her exquisite engravings that capture the essence of the human body, translating the emotions of movement and celebrating fragility. Graduating from the Institute of Fine Arts N. Grigoresco's graphic section in Bucharest, Romania, in 1977, she embarked on a creative journey deeply rooted in classicism, marked by erudition and elegance.


Canini's drawings evoke a sense of prayer, suspended and unfinished, embodying desires yet to unfold. Her figures, born under the observer's gaze, convey a timeless quality reminiscent of discovering a softly illuminated fresco. Embracing the art of suggestion, Canini believes it invites viewers to dream and makes her characters universally relatable.


With a preference for earthy and ecru colors, Canini utilizes the transparency of paper, inks, and lines to create a dreamlike atmosphere. Her artistic evolution includes a significant period of studying and refining her technique in Bucharest, where she delved into etching and aquatint.


The fusion of contemporary reality with the echoes of time defines Canini's style, described by Jean-Louis Pinte as an encounter between eras. Her participation in numerous engraving exhibitions globally, including the Ljubljana Biennale in Yugoslavia and the Chamalières Small Format Triennial, highlights her international recognition. Sylviane Canini's art, rooted in both French and Romanian influences, remains a testament to the universal language of visual expression.
