"I don't paint, I cultivate painting".
"In one interview, to the question why he does painting Silvashi replied with the following: "For me, it is a way to establish harmony with the world, because the man is doomed to existential loneliness". In this phrase - experience of a man and an artist for whom painting is a way of thinking, feeling and "embodying" himself as a personality, communicating about the world beyond words".
