Bela Silva


Bela Silva’s form of expression is a fusion of fine and applied arts. Passionate about both ceramics and drawing, she was told she had to choose between them, but instead, she listened to her inner voice and now works with both. After studying fine arts in Porto, Bela continued her studies abroad, and it was her time at the Art Institute of Chicago that put her on the path to becoming the artist she is today. Bela's immense creativity comes from everyday life, fantasy and travelling. “But we can also travel at home,” she says. Living between Brussels and Lisbon, her creations are a barometer of her state of mind. When they become too dark Bela knows it’s time to seek out sun and warmth so as to restore colour and light to her objects.
