Sylvia Sippl (born 1990) is an emerging visual artist in Perth, Western Australia. Graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2010 from the University of Western Australia, Sylvia has gone on to study Art Education, minoring in Special Education.
Passionate about all areas of The Arts, Sylvia is a dedicated member of the Perth cultural community, contributing her own work (whether visual arts, performance, musical, or educational), as well as helping foster a network of passionate and talented artists by organising and providing support to small and large-scale cultural events.
Sylvia’s visual art includes work around themes such as feminity, gender, beauty, identity, and the abject or horrifying. It is often beautiful, but subtly challenging, the result of a philosophical or aesthetic exploration: a journey.
Sylvia’s education has shaped her into a passionate conceptual artist, whose work is explorative and informed and developed by research and meaning. She is equally dedicated to the education of others, as an experienced and enthusiastic teacher of The Arts, not only in schools but in independent cultural events such as Sculpture by the Sea.
A musician since childhood, Sylvia also participates in Perth’s musical scene, with groups such as The WA Charity Orchestra, and numerous string quartets. A violinist and pianist, Sylvia has taught music since 2005; privately, at specialist music schools, and at secondary school.
Her participation in The Arts extends to performance as well; a member of the Lady Velvet Cabaret troupe (but thankfully not a dancer), Sylvia performs and MCs on stage at regular events, including a recent sell-out season at the Perth Fringe World 2012. Her management positions within Azure Entertainment and The WA Performance School give her the opportunity to participate in other sectors of The Arts, such as dance, safely behind the scenes.
