about s.lê : creative director & founder
The answer to everything is in simple things. In poetry, sounds are stripped away until only the essence of sound is left. In watercolor, mastery is achieved in the taking of fewer strokes. To be a creative person is to practice, to study, and practice some more until every action appears effortless, until the hands recognize beauty instinctively, mysteriously.
To me, the spirit of art is not in creation but in mastery. To write, to paint, to craft… is to rewrite, repaint, re-craft... to create and recreate objects until they buzz with intensity. One must accept that it takes time to see and to feel.
In my daily life, I practice poetry, graphic design and art. I gather ideas from literature and scientific studies; and from nature, I seek religion in missed intersections, askew shapes and unexpected juxtaposition of colors. My name is s.lê. I create.
