Selected Works

Erik Sille was born in 1978 in Rožňava, Czechoslovakia. He Lives and works in Bratislava, Slovakia.

This quotation introduced the work of Erik Šille in the catalogue Painting after Painting (Slovak National Gallery, 2010) and in many ways rendered the work of undoubtedly the most successful painter of his generation. He raised attention already during his studies at the studio of Professor Ivan Csudai, when a strong “acrylic generation” of painters emerged. Although Šille belongs to its prominent representatives, he continually cultivates, develops and enriches his highly distinctive style with new elements and characters. Possibly the most characteristic feature of Šille’s work is his sophisticated symbolism that utilizes the form, charm, and ambiguity of the animated world and comic characters. wrote: Alexandra Kusá (General Director of Slovak National Gallery)
