About the Artist:
Syd The Artiste, also known as Sydonne Warren, is a Calgary based Visual Artist who began her self-taught art journey in 2013. Since then, Sydonne has developed into a professional Artist, Instructor and Designer and finally a student at Alberta University of the Arts.
Sydonne predominantly creates portraits but has recently explored abstract works. Her artwork often showcases a combination of high contrast subjects, bold but straightforward colour palettes, and a mixture of expressive strokes, drips and rigid lines. Sydonne’s themes are usually a reflection of herself and her desire for people of the African diaspora not only to occupy, but impact and own space.
