The main subject of Silvashi's abstract art is “time” that has developed into the program of chronorealism where the painting is a symbol of the slowing down time and the colour objects are as open structures. The viewer becomes not a reader or interpreter, but a participant in the experience of changing thinking.

"I don't paint, I cultivate painting." – Tiberiy Szilvashi
"In one interview, to the question why he does painting Silvashi replied with the following: "For me, it is a way to establish harmony with the world, because the man is doomed to existential loneliness". In this phrase - experience of a man and an artist for whom painting is a way of thinking, feeling and "embodying" himself as a personality, communicating about the world beyond words." – Galyna Sklyarenko
