“I make quick sketches and notes in my travel journal, mini rough drafts, nothing precise. The 1000’s of photos I take of every place I travel, further serve as color and theme inspiration. The creative process is completely free and natural, I start with the brush and finish with texture, laying out rhinestones and crystals. Just like every mouth shape is unique, each “kiss” painting is unique. I shape the lips with extra large brush strokes, sculpting them freely on canvas with thick glossy acrylics.”

Olesya was born in Russia and after a successful career in Art Direction and Graphic Design for HBO, Hearst, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Under Armour, she followed her dream of becoming an independent artist and now resides in New Orleans, LA. She travels the world and tells stories of colorful inspiration and experiences through her paintings. Her work has been shown in galleries and museums world wide, including France, UK, Russia, and the US. She showed at the LA Contemporary at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Louisiana State Museum and most recently, the Red Dot Far, Art Basel Miami, and Steve Martin Gallery on Julia Street. Her paintings are visual indulgences, full of vibrancy, color and whimsy. With her popular “Kiss” and “DREAM” collection, she tells beautiful stories on canvas through the symbolism of the lips and eyes.

Change exists in the landscape all around us everyday. This Spring in New Orleans there was a great freeze after a relatively warm winter, turning many of the subtropical greens to brown. ‘Warm Earth’ reflects on that ecological event by juxtaposing the yellow and browning leaves with the saturated green ones, along with bright red lines and a burning Mississippi atop.
