About kruchkova.olena

Alena (Art Philosophy Atelier) is a modern Ukrainian artist widely known not only in Ukraine but also abroad. She finished her studies at Notre Dame De Victoria College in San Francisco, then at the  Kiev University of International Relations, but decided to devote herself to art. She spent most of her childhood in Italy, on the Ligurian coast, where her father used to surfe, and this led to love of a marine theme in the paintings of a young artist. As a child, she studied painting under the guidance of her mother, therefore from an early age, artistic activity received full support from the parents. Equestrian sport is an old tradition of the her family. Alena adores horses, she does horse-riding every day and even participates and takes prizes in competitions. While in New York, she likes to listen to jazz. This amazing city atmosphere together with the nice music inspires Alena greatly. Her realistic paintings can be divided into 4 main categories: portraits, horses, landscapes and a marine theme. Her goal is to create mood and emotion by manipulating the light and using muted colors. Figurative expressionism make up most of Alena’s work. In portraits she focuses on depicting emotions, strives to obtain the greatest possible effect by simple means. Likes color, but often uses shades of gray paint to achieve the best impression. Alena is not afraid to experiment with different new techniques. Creating an artpiece is a  kind of meditation for her. She adores spending time working on her artworks and the more she works the more she is inspired. Her motto is : Art is a mean to become immortal.
