About the artist Olesia Tkachenko

«Olesya Tkachenko is a contemporary Ukrainian artist who works with textile materials, including cotton, wool and silk, to create works of art that are profound in meaning and relevant in terms of imagination. The artist tries to communicate via textiles, focuses on the visual language, conducts bold experiments with shape, texture and image. Tkachenko ‘s work contains the freedom of expression and the flight of fancy. She seeks the latest figurative and technological solutions - from abstract to figurative, from wall to three-dimensional installations.» My textile art is a reflection of my life, feelings and emotions, artistic practices and experiments. I try to communicate through fibers, focusing on visual language, and conduct bold experiments with form, texture, and image. I am looking for the latest visual and technological solutions from abstract to figurative, from plain to 3D installations. I create textile art of natural materials - wool, cotton, silk, and hemp fibers, which resemble a brushstroke, a graphic stroke and line. This is not actually just a piece of tissue for me, it is an art object, and it is my conceptual work, my vision of the world. Olesya Tkachenko was born in 1977. In 1998, she graduated from the Luhansk Art School with a specialty of artist-designer. In 2005, she received the qualification level "Specialist" in fabric painting at the Lviv National Academy of Arts, Department of Textiles. In 2011, she received a Master's degree and acquired the qualifications of a textile artist, researcher, and teacher. From 2006 to 2015, he was a teacher at the college of the Kyiv National University of Technology and Design (KNUTD). Since 2015, he has been the head of his own art studio "Yaskravo".
