It doesn't matter how long it takes to make, it matters how long it lasts.
Sylvia Moritz is an Austrian illustrator and printmaker based in Vienna. Observations of her surroundings play a vital role in shaping the direction of her practice, which usually has underlying environmentalist attitudes.
As well as etching, Sylvia works meticulously with techniques including screen-printing, pencil, pen, and digital illustration.
Sylvia studied Graphic Communication at ‘Die Graphische’ in Vienna. Later, she spent a year studying Illustration at the SMFA (School of the Museum of Fine Arts) in Boston, and studying printmaking at the University of Berkeley in San Francisco.
In 2011, Sylvia enrolled at the University of the Arts London and practised etching, screen-printing and graphic design. During this time she undertook a six-month intensive at The Parsons New School for Design, New York. She graduated first from Camberwell College of Arts, in 2014.
Sylvia has worked to develop her own studio in Austria. Complete with a full-sized etching press, she is now expanding her range of editions alongside raising a family and running her secondary business, The City Works.
