I was waiting for the last two weeks to find out, which art work the curators chose for the London Calling exhibition in OCCCA museum in Santa Ana coming this Christmas time. The day came, and I’m delighted to send my New Golden Seed off. This wall sculpture is made from mixed materials including artificial and real human hair, cement, wood, glue and paint. It is in line with the Hair Series – Hair and Dust Painting was the first of the series, followed by adventurous New Golden Seed and The Red Seed.

I’m personally donating my newest study, Organic Golf Balls, reduced to extremely good price of only £100! After the event, the price will go back to £300.

I’m happy to say I’ve been chosen to show my work at this amazing exhibition in America.

Their roster of artists reads like a who’s who of the young, UK art scene, including Rosie Emerson, Tahnee Lonsdale, and Agnetha Sjogren.

I would like to write today about one of the best, if not the best private view I’ve experienced. Why and what happened? I’ve decided to approach talking with people during the event in a different way, and combine that with gaining  my skills as an interviewer. What for? I’ve been given my own show on Colourful Radio! Becoming their artist in residence will give me a chance to report and portray  monthly, an artist of my choice. My slot is going to be 20 minutes and will be running during  “Art, culture and life with Rosemary Laryea“. The first show is already on, on October 2oth, at 12.0o. I’ll be portraying the winner of New Sensation Artist, Saatchi Gallery’s and Channel 4’s competition. There are 4 finalists, and the winner will be revealed tomorrow, October 8th. I need every chance to practice, I can get! That’s why October’s Private View at Debut Contemporary,  was so useful. Nigel from Flixels gave me a microphone, and he’d been recording the variation of dialogues, interviews of the night. Dropping just a few examples, I talked to at least a dozen of artists, photographers,  even a couple of politicians and an icon of British photography, Mr Angelo Valentino. Yes, I got to talk with him, and we had a very interesting discussion about current art scene and future of film, music and photography in ever changing digitalized world. Now I just have to get the files from Nigel from Flixels and try to listen, whether it all worked. I’ll bring another blog article fully dedicated to it, once I have a better idea of what I have, and what sort of quality it came out. I’m already so looking forward to it!  Until next time, have a good day and all the best to you all.  Silvia

Grape Extraction Sculpture and plasticine balls, installation idea for Organicities.

As Organicities approaches in 2 weeks I’m considering how to refresh the installation of my sculptures, especially those that are longing their “natural” environment. To be more specific, I’m talking about “From the Bottom of the Sea Sculptures“. To  make it feel more comfortable, and “like at home” I’m having a go at testing it’s unfinished cousin, plaster ball, immersed in water. There might be even special guests joining, it would be VIF to be precise. To find out more about them, pop in to Debut Contemporary on Saturday15th October 12-5. If you would like to read the press release click here, or for e-flyer click here.

Experiments with the installation of From the Bottom of the Sea Sculpture.

Testing of an unfinished plaster ball in water, is making me think that VIF guests will be coming in! You'll be sure to find out their names on 15.10.11, in Debut Contemporary.

Please join me at my charity event, I’ll be showing my sculptures and presenting latest work, drawing called “Skinny Fly, Krupinskus Redulus Armonus” and it’s short story attached with a voice over. The wings of the fly are made from my own skin. This work is created in collaboration with Jennifer Farmer. There’ll be more art to see from various Artists, collective of Debut Contemporary.

At 1.30 I’ll give a talk about my art and I explain my reasons behind the event.
At 3 o’clock I’ll do a Grape Extraction Technique presentation on a brand new sculpture.

This event is in aid of Skin Cancer Research UK Charity, and we’re going to try to achieve £1000 target. I’ll be donating part from all sales.
This event is work in progress for now, watch out for new grabbing info soon.
Press release will be available on request on, or – site with my portfolio – super hot news! Doesn’t burn, unlike my skin…

Silvia Krupinska, Skinny Fly 2011


I had a really productive lunch today in the company of talented Coffee (Jennifer Farmer) from Coffee and Sponge duo. We were discussing our latest projects and possible future collaboration, at the same time talking about not only the fruit flies bothering us, but also my latest artwork, A Skinny Fly 2011. As it is a bit of a secret, can’t reveal more but what I can tell you is, that my upcoming event in  Debut Contemporary on Saturday 15th October, 12-5, so called – “Saturday Debut” should be interesting. Keep the date free and pop in before or after  the Frieze Art Fair on Saturday. More details to follow in a week or two.

Lunching while studying a book of flies and chatting away with Jennifer.
