Brazilian-born Silvia Poloto is an accomplished artist working in a range of visual disciplines. She is known for her lively abstract canvases and mixed-media sculptures.

Recognized for her dynamic compositions and color sensibility, Poloto exploits a vibrant visual vocabulary of boldness and subtlety. Her deftly handled juxtapositions unfold in rich, textured hues and expressive gestures. The result is a body of work characterized by equal amounts of surprise, playfulness, and provocation. Her aesthetic choices engage the viewer on a visceral level.

While the Bay Area is her current home, her work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and abroad, including France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Romania, Croatia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece, and China, among others.

In the Bay Area, her work has been featured in exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Italian American Museum, the Triton Museum in Santa Clara, and the DeYoung Museum, where she was an artist-in-residence.

Poloto’s work has been acquired extensively by institutional, corporate, and private collectors.
