Silvie Seidlitz

Born and raised in Switzerland I have forged a career in commodities’ trading for which I travelled extensively, living in Moscow, Hong Kong, Beijing, Sydney and Geneva. My passion for art was born in the mid 1970s after encountering the Swiss artist Max Bill. While based in Moscow I developed a knowledge and love of Soviet Art. After this, I moved to Asia  where my passion for Chinese contemporary art was ignited. In the late 80s and 90s I was a pioneer in bringing contemporary artists to the public eye, generating the attention and admiration they deserved. Many great friends and connections forged in this exciting time and I maintain these ties today. My passion for Chinese art has never diminished.
