SAILEV Front picture.jpg



Enthralled by the beauty of nature and its wilderness Sailev developed a vision of the world that is both poetic and alarming. On the canvas the artist combines surrealism with a precise execution, trapping the viewer into a contemplative reflection on nature and ecology. Sailev deftly paints his animals and plants as true characters in the grip of torment, haste, ecstasy and dreams, icons of the climate crisis. By capturing the beauty and wealth of nature as it rages towards destruction, Sailev probes into the theme of cataclysm, adapting the genre to the modern world. His art is a tool for soft-activism that aims to inspire the world in a positive way.

Sailev was born in 1982 in Northern France. He currently lives and works near Honfleur, in the heart of Normandy. He has lived in several countries including Russia, Hong Kong, and the Philippines. He owns a master’s degree in biology.
