Information
About myself and my artworks

Olena Samoilyk's paintings are a realistic mystery with star lions and proud ibex on the background of paradise gardens with heavenly flowers.

The artist's expressive technique immerses in the world of marvelous cinema, where constellations, fields, meadows, seas and rivers flash with fiery sunsets and sound of waves. Light and lively world, turning intо unreal, full of daring strokes and bright clean colors. Any story written by the author goes beyond the everyday life.

The artist has a wonderful vision of nature, generous and rich. And we follow her, as enchanted, unable to tear our eyes from the abundance of life in the blossoming beautiful world around us, we are carried away in its animated and sparkling landscapes and mystical subjects.

The whole universe is contained in the works of Olena Samoilyk: fabulously beautiful nature, mountains and seas, sunrises and sunsets, blooming gardens and space expanses. And in this paradise on earth characters of different myths and legends live and tell their stories. Some are so similar to people of divine beauty, others are not easy to see, their images are merged with others. A whole series of zodiac signs, like visions in the night sky, woven from galaxies and nebulae, arise and dissolve in it. The artist has a sensitive and romantic perception, she is able to see the souls of objects and animate that which at first glance is static.

The landscapes of Olena Samoilyk are panoramic, permeated with light and air, the master is incredibly sensitive to the elements. The water is clear and transparent, the whole world is reflected in every drop, the purple clouds in the sky play whole mysteries, even simple vegetables in the paintings of the artist look like real treasures. Painter creates a variety of strokes - they are swift and ornate, then intermittent, resembling a spray. Colors are bright and fresh, she's like taking paints from nature itself and putting them on the canvas.

The artist's paintings are full of magic, she tells us a wonderful story about the world of people and gods coexisting on earth. It seems to say that everything around us is not so simple as it seems, this universe is only open to those who are sensitive and attentive. In the fairy-tale world of Olena Samoilyk everything is alive and full of the wisdom of the origins, she dedicates us to its most intimate secrets.
