Sylvia Rack

Canada

Sylvia Rack is contemporary realist painter based in Montreal, Canada. Originally specializing in hand drawn and experimental film animation, she then changed course to specialize in computer animator in the video game industry. But after several years, working in a purely commercial, digital industry took its toll. She longed to for the tactile experience of hands on work, and the creative experession of making something personal from begining to end. Serendipitiously the art director at her video game studio mentioned in passing the Angel Academy of Art in Florence. It only took 8 months upon discovering the school existed, to quiting her job and moving to Italy to begin a life of academic study. As a recent graduate of the academy, she has now devoted herself full-time to painting her own works in her studio in Montreal.
