Olena Bogatska has always been interested in art. As a child, she was inspired by her grandfather, who was an artist and discovered her creative side. She continued to pursue her interest through the early years of her life. Later she studied art in London Art College.
She truly believes in the beauty of life. Every day is full of wonders and beautiful colors, and this is the philosophy she wants to convey through her works of art. Every painting is a challenge for her. It is a quest and an experiment with participation of canvas, oil paint, imagination and sense of Beauty. She prefers to use the palette knife instead of paint brushes. This technique gives her enough room for spontaneity and experiment with colours and textures. She treats the object that inspires her to paint only as a source, taking reference from it but never trying to mimic it exactly. She wants to leave room for imagination. Her objective is to create mood and resonate with viewers' emotions.
