Mick Sylvestre, New Westminster Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement I started drawing at age six and from there I continued developing my interests in the arts. In my late twenties I started taking a few fine art classes and ended graduating from College with a diploma in the graphic and visual arts field. Over the years I've developed this painting series you see in my Sylvestre Studios gallery. My painting style is a hybrid derivation of Australian (Papunya Tula or “Dot-Art”), Mayan, Aztec and ancient Egyptian artwork. I hope you tell others to come and see some more of my work as it grows over time.
