Sahil Roy Print


Artist: Sahil Roy

Title:Ground is Lava

Year Created: 2020

Artist Statement: “This piece (“Ground is Lava”) belongs to a wider body of work. The collection consists of original compositions on paper created during my time in isolation. This particular piece holds a personal significance, which is why I decided to keep it for myself as a souvenir of the year that was. The composition features a number of abstracted elements precariously balanced, ready to fall at a moments notice, yet still standing together in defiant solidarity. Tonally and texturally varied, these objects are representative of the emotional fortitude needed to survive what has been a trying time for many here in Melbourne as well as across the world. From the bad, always comes good. I don’t speak for myself when I say isolation has been a rather positive experience in many ways. A moment in history, when I was allowed the time to sit with myself, rediscover a personal sense of peace and truly be grateful for my time here.”

Artist Bio: Sahil Roy is a multi-disciplinary artist and designer based in Melbourne, AUS. With a creative foundation as a graffiti artist spanning over a decade, his transition into an abstract approach has allowed him to explore an entirely new avenue of style and creative self-expression. Inspired by the spontaneous compositions that exist throughout his cityscape, he has long been drawn to these somewhat temporary glimpses of colour, shape and form. Built up from years of bill postering, scrawls, graffiti and neglect, layers of the past and present are lifted, torn and pulled back revealing pockets of collage like scrapbook pages.

After years of obsessively studying and documenting these experiences, Sahil’s now signature layering processes enable him to capture his own visual narratives, floating through dynamic layers of stylistic introspection.
