"Court Side Stilled"
Ghost town of Pripyat, Ukraine.
Biography: Olena is a Toronto-based visual artist with dual passions – a great love for the serenity and timeless beauty of forgotten spaces and the creative energy of performance photography.
When working with both live and still subjects, Olena draws on her visual arts background in both composition and processing to create fine art works that are richly in texture and colour, oftentimes drawing on historic and vintage aspects of the subject for her inspiration. The final pieces have a painterly feel and have been exhibited using alternative framing methods to complement and accentuate this style.
