Hello! My name is Olena Mishina. I am a young Ukrainian artist. I paint landscapes, still lifes, portraits, abstraction, improvisation and graphics.
I was born in Dnepropetrovsk (now — the Dnieper). And now I live and work in Dnieper. Drawing pictures for me is like breathing. I often go to the open air, I draw the picturesque corners of Ukraine. In my works I try to convey the inner essence and beauty of the surrounding world in form, color and its game. Each time of the year is beautiful in its own way, and the artist conveys this beauty with his creativity. Also I write portraits and images of people. My goal is not only to depict the external image of man, but also in constant study and the desire to convey the most characteristic and important things that I discover in him.
From 2007 to 2010 studied at the Art School of Dnepropetrovsk.
From 2010 to 2013 studied at the Dnipropetrovsk Theater and Art College.
September 2013 — December 2018 — study at Kharkov State Academy of Design and Arts at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Department of Easel Painting, plot-themed workshop. Under the guidance of academic leaders, famous artists Yuri Vintayev and Viktor Kovtun received a Master of Arts degree.
