Sylvia, the artist behind meromero, is a Canadian painter from Montreal, Quebec. She’s been painting since she was a child. She studied in Fine Arts in cégep du Vieux-Montréal before changing her major to nursing. She then worked as a freelance artist in Montreal, painting murals for Japanese bars and restaurants.Since then, she has been traveling around. She is currently based in Yokosuka, Japan.
In her art, she draws influences from her travels, the things she sees and her passing connections. The concept of ephemeral moments is placed at the heart of her work. The idea behind ‘ meromero ’ is to be madly in love, to be drunk in love, with yourself, and everything that is ‘you’.
