Born in a forest of millennium oaks, in 1977, Sylvestre has spent most of his childhood climbing trees and observing nature.. and later on surfing waves around the globe. Sylvestre was a sculptor before being born, always with things and tools in his hands and his imagination would do the rest, extremely sensitive, perceptive and a bit shy.
He graduated at the Accademia Belle Arti of Carrara and worked then in various institutional art studios in Pietrasanta where he mastered his techniques of carving marble, especially monumental pieces. His sculptures are now present in public and private collections in the major cultural capitals around the globe, such as Paris, London, Rome, Amsterdam, Hong-Kong, Dubai… and Pietrasanta where he works and lives today.
