Siphne Sylve makes Memphis look and sound just a little more beautiful. As project manager (and resident mural maestro) for UrbanArt Commission, she’s helped bring a little extra color to neighborhoods all over town. As one half of the acapella hip-hop/soul/R&B/funk duo, Artistik Approach, she can make music anywhere there’s a microphone.
Siphne is a New Orleans native who moved to Memphis in 2006 to attend Memphis College of Art, where she earned a BFA while studying illustration and art history. Catch Artistik Approach at their “Artistik Lounge” every Sunday night at the Rumba Room at 303 South Main Street.
