About me


I am a French-Guadeloupean visual artist residing  in London.

My artwork is diverse in subject matter, style and technique. I like to work in series and create cohesive bodies of work. This enables me to explore topics more deeply and from a variety of perspectives.

Some of my visual narratives are undoubtedly influenced by my Afro-Caribbean heritage and historical interest in the Diaspora.  A love for nature, literature and travelling also transpires in my work.

My influences are first and foremost everything I see, feel and experience. Each collection becomes  a visual journal, revealing my emotional reactions to life experiences.

   

In 2014, I received an honourable mention at the Monochrome Awards for self-portrait 'Falling with grace’. ‘Fearless’, a portrait from the same collection, was selected as finalist for the May 2014 Shoot The Face Award.

More recently, monochrome nude photograph 'Sensuelle' received an honourable mention at the Neutral Density Photography Awards 2017 and the  Monochrome Awards 2017.

"AJ Silistrie’s photographs are framed with equivocation and an illusory depth...AJ, consistently presents a body of work which exudes an aura of curiosity and provocation." Gus Franklyn-Bute, Editor-in-Chief of ACU|BIEN
