Hi there. Today are exactly four years from my first blog registration with WordPress. And wow, the time flies so much! I can hardly count hours spent on composing and typing or uploading images to this blog. I can tell you that it isn’t always easy, and at times I feel it just takes too much effort. But you know what? I’m really happy I’d started it. I’ve learned so much since (that never stops), but I’m not afraid now to say what I feel, especially when talking about art, fellow artists or my own work.

I’m taking a little bit of time to reflect on my art and my brand, and I feel ever so excited to work even harder, with some tough decisions and obstacles to overtake, but bring it on! One thing I knew always, who I am, and who I wanna be – an artist. That no one can take from me. I’ve received so much support and guidance from you, my friends and family. Thank you for believing in me!

I’m thrilled, as for the first time I’m working and collaborating with a museum in Slovakia. In my home city, Poprad. That gives me a tremendous pleasure, as when I finish this, some of this work will be on a permanent display in the museum and that would be my first permanent art display. Fingers crossed. I’m also working towards a solo show in 2015, and a lovely project in The Czech Republic too with ‘my rock’ LivePozitive OZ. Thank you so much Kriss and Dodo! Much to say, but I don’t wanna go on for too long. So, this is it. Thanks again to you all. Thanks for the support and the opportunities! I’m very grateful indeed.

Yours truly,







About the artist:

Silvia Krupinska is a Londoner, born in Slovakia by the Natural Park of The High Tatras. She graduated at Chelsea School of Art and Design in 2006, and since is working in her studio creating organic textural sculptures and paintings. “Organic is curved, organic is asymmetrical, organic is natural materials, organic is individualistic, organic is holistic.” by Sidney K Robinson are the words which she holds on to. Her art practice is focused on the synergy of humans and nature with accents on the environment. She documents, records and passes on her observations to the public also in a form of her abalone drawings on paper containing mosaic like mother of pearl flakes put together in shapes of mountain lakes or coastal lines, significant geographical points. She makes works of art based on her direct experiences, either walking the beaches, exploring her holiday destinations or escaping to her childhood. Krupinska has exhibited during The Venice Biennale 2009 in an EU-Art-Network exhibition in Palazzo Albrizzi, and participated in a number of shows and art symposiums in The UK, Austria, Germany, Azerbaijan and Slovakia. Currently she is preparing for her third but biggest solo exhibition in 2015 in London, and giving lots of her attention to KAJ.

About the brand:

KAJ – Krupinska Abalone Jewellery is a fresh and poetic jewellery brand by a London based organic texture artist Silvia Krupinska. KAJ is natural looking jewellery almost entirely made from the recycled abalone sea shells. Abalone are characteristic by their lustrous iridescent mother of pearl on the inner side and irresistible and tactile white and pink texture on the outer side, which contain a row of breathing holes. KAJ’s shells are resourced from sustainable sources within the Trade in Endangered Species licence. KAJ is deliberately kept as natural as possible, to underline its organic beauty. There is no messing around with KAJ in their production, but lots of love and care with some essential grinding, smoothing and polishing to bring it to you in the best form!

KAJ is enjoying the attention and is happy to be worn with anything, but one thing is for sure, it will make you stand out of the crowd! Have fun wearing it! You might spot KAJ internationally including in Canada, Slovakia, Czech Republic. After its first TV appearance in TV Poprad in October 2013, it continues to grow with lots of collaborations and exciting announcements coming soon. 



As people asked for it, I’m going to make some KAJ earrings too. More info and images coming soon to my social  media platforms and my online store Thanks for the follow! It’s much appreciated.


As my opening post this year, I’m announcing a competition on Facebook! I’m going to give a small artwork made with abalone to a person who will click like no. 200 on my Facebook page! What do you think? I also give one small artwork to a person who will share this update through Facebook with the text as seen. All will be announced with no. 200 like! Thanks so much.


I can’t wait to show my art in Slovakia for the first time, since I moved in London nearly fifteen years ago! I’m doing an exhibition, hopefully one of many to come there, where it all began, where I grew up and my ideas, ideologies and sensibilities began to form. All of this influenced by my amazing family and friends, but also the nature. Having a natural reserve round the corner helped, I guess!? The mountains and meadows I knew so intimately, stayed with me.

The shape of The High Tatras Mountains is captivating and very powerful image. I still see it in my mind so vividly; remembering looking outside of the window. I’m sure that this has influenced me so much, I’ve became a sculptor! I feel it in my bones. Painting itself was no longer enough… I need to create a kind of mass and texture, variation of surfaces and objects; hence I found sculpting more fulfilling. It is my inner artistic need.

And you know what they say? …

You can take the girl out of the mountains, but you can’t take the mountains out of the girl!   


Please join me if you can at Foyer Domu Kultúry (Culture House), Štefánikova 99/72, 058 01 Poprad – for my show Mountain Lakes and Fragments from       8. – 15. October 2013, during XXI.

This exhibition is supported and organized by Livepozitive O.N. What a lovely bunch of people, without whom this wouldn’t be possible. I’d like to thank Livepozitive wholeheartedly, and I’m so looking forward to being in Poprad for my exhibition! Bring it on.

I finished a sculpture at Tynemouth Longsands beach yesterday by dipping it in the sea water. I’ve more images and this photographic series and they will be available as original photographic prints in the near future. Have a great week and come back soon for the next blog post. Cheers!

Time has come for me to think after this long winter about what is it I want to achieve this season (a year for me begins in the late March). I’ve decided to investigate my roots and true desires in making art, hence I bring you a gesture of this thought, my first self-portrait.

“When my sculptures touch a part of nature, or are set in the nature, that is the final step for them to their completion. They need to experience the water, the sand, the sun, all of those “sensations” and afterwards, they carry a part of that positive, natural vibration in them.”

“My work is about nature, texture and most importantly how the sculptures and humans need the nature, act in nature and belong to it.”

The series of From the Bottom of the Sea Sculptures are white sensual objects. Their silky-smooth exterior is contrasting with the textures tunnelling inside them. The light and the air come through from all directions making them irresistible to look in and explore the tunnels. They are comparable to pearls or other treasures that are found in the deepest secret places of oceans. Their titles are inspired like the sculptures themselves by the islands in Ria Formosa Natural Reserve in Portugal.

I’m doing some live grape extraction sculpting on Sunday 2nd September and Tuesday 4th September. You can find me inside the fantastic new Library and Community centre in Barking on both days from 1pm. Follow the signs. More information will be available at soon. More about grape extraction and my art here.  For the brochure including the programme click this pdf. I’m looking forward to your visit.

I’m looking forward to giving my presentation as an alumni of Debut Contemporary at this cool event along with other Debut Contemporary artists. Book your seat, if you’d like to come at

Hello dear friends. I took part in “One Day’s Walk”, The Stone Space exhibition. It had a great response from the locals and the theme was to involve the community and the artist from Leytonstone (East London). You might already know that I enjoy taking  “From the Bottom of the Sea” sculptures out , even on my travels. In the past I had one with me in a desert in Emirates, in Margate on the beach, or back in Slovakia… For this exhibition, I had taken one of my “From the Bottom of the Sea” sculpture out to Leytonstone’s Epping forest, and let it sit in a meadow. We tried many angles and ways, for the sculpture to be most comfortable. I chose one photograph of it, which was used to produce cards accompanying the show. Each artist had cards made. Those are for sale in the gallery for £1 each to support The Stone Space in their amazing first year running. If you would like one of my cards free, email me ( with your postal address and I’ll send it to you or visit the gallery. Hurry, I’ve have less than 30 left.

These are images of my latest work in progress. This time instead of grapes, I’m using some blueberries as sculpting material. Blueberry extraction technique experiments have been fun to do, and I love the smell of the fruit as well. These are going to be a couple of very healthy art works! For the following two sculptures, I cast 15 blueberries each.
