biography

My name is Sandrine Replat, artist's name Senyphine. 2D Digital Painter & Fine Artist. BA with honors from School of Graphic & Digital Arts in 2001.

I was born in 1978 and I live in France. Since my childhood I have had a passion for drawing. use and mix different mediums to make my paintings : pencil, black ink, charcoal pen, acrylic and watercolor paint, Photoshop & Wacom Cintiq. It is a way for me to explore all the possibilities of each medium and to get the effect that will better fit to the mood. I like to give a eerie atmosphere to my work, painting dreamlike landcapes or odd characters close to thefairy tales, children’s tales and fantasy litterature.

During my childhood I was always captivated by images in the book and cartoon films. Today I draw on cinema / Animated films (Burton, Jeunet, Miyazaky, Disney), literature (Poe, Lovecraft, Verne), painting (Dali, Rembrandt, De Vinci, Doré), Steampunk & retro-futurism style...I am also influenced by street arts (Jeff Soto), tattoo artists  Belly Buton) and music (Tool, APC, Ez3kiel, sayCet...). For me, painting is a means of expression, an outlet. A call to escapism. A real need to deal with the tedium of everyday life, to twist reality by giving it a dreamlike, nightmarish and mysterious atmosphere.

I illustrate book covers, children books, comic strips, CD's artwork, posters...I am also open for private commissions paintings & tattoo designs.
