Biography

―― In this article, we will introduce you to the work of a unique artist from another part of the world.
   This is an international artist Oleksandra Malyshko.
   She is a member of IAA Europe (International Association of Art Section Europe) and the National Union of Artists of Ukraine.

Oleksandra Malyshko is a talented Ukrainian artist known for her original oil paintings on canvas.
Was born in the city of Dnipro, Ukraine In 1977. She is a member of IAA Europe (International Association of Art Section Europe) and the National Union of Artists of Ukraine.
She is an active member of the regional art community. Her work has been exhibited international, nationally and is in private and public collections.

Pursuit of “linear impressionist” expression

―― You create very unique art with many layers of lines.
   Can you tell us more about that technique?

She specializes in a style called linear impressionism, which combines elements of both linear and impressionistic techniques. This style emphasizes bold, expressive brushwork and uses strong lines to create a sense of movement and energy within the artwork.
In her paintings, you can expect to see a harmonious blend of precise lines and vibrant, loose brushstrokes. Her works often capture fleeting moments and atmospheric impressions rather than focusing on intricate details. This approach allows her to convey emotions and sensations through the interplay of colors, shapes, and textures.
As an artist, Oleksandra draws inspiration from nature, landscapes, and everyday life. Her paintings may depict landscapes, cityscapes, still lifes, or figurative subjects. Each artwork reflects her unique perspective and personal interpretation of the subject matter.

I want to share my personal world and dreams with the world.

―― What do you expect from NFT?

For me, it is an opportunity to have viewers, connoisseurs and collectors from different countries. It’s a new breath, new sensations: to express myself and feel my audience. Your personal reflections on the paintings. We are all different, but art does not require knowledge of language – it is our personal world, dreams, fantasies, a reflection of eternity.

Illuminate the canvas with your cell phone and yearn for the arrival of spring.

―― I hear that creating your art was very difficult due to the unique circumstances.
   There was a huge change in the environment.

“We all went through the eye of the needle this year. Each of us experienced internal changes. Everyone fought for the right to live here. We fought the darkness, the cold, sometimes we went hungry, but we are here. Everyone worked as hard as they could for the future. We prayed as much as we could, in all languages, with the prayers we had been taught.”
In the fall of 2022, I felt a strong fracture inside, tired of suffering and struggling. At that time, a part of me became free. Despite the difficult circumstances, I wanted to paint pictures of a happy future. How spring would come, the sun would warm the earth, and recovery would begin.
I devoted all my time to this. I moved the canvas and paints to a warm room, sat on the floor, and sometimes used my cell phone to illuminate it. There was enough time to realize the idea of painting in the dark. You will be able to see what happened during the exhibition.
At this time, I have forgotten a lot of our life over the past year, but looking at the paintings, I remember almost everything. This is my artistic testimony to what we have been through.

The war continues and I value my time more and more. As before, my daughter and I sit next to the bathroom during the explosions. It seems to us that this space is the safest in the house, but it’s just a comforting thought. When I am not inspired, I go outside to feed the wild birds because it is cold and snowy around.
In recent years (during the war), the artist has created personal exhibitions in her native area and abroad: dedicated to those who have lived, are living and will live on this land.

Fostering creativity with a family full of dreams and creativity

―― Please tell us about your encounter with art, its roots, and its journey.

I was born in a family where everyone draws. Since childhood, I remember thick notebooks with drawings-stories about Cossacks, saints, etc. (funny and satirical), which were drawn by cousins.
At the same time, everyone in the family has a talent for fine art, each in their own way. But few chose art as a profession. There were and still are sculptors, icon painters, architects, and artists in the family. My grandmother painted flowers for jewelry, she could do anything with her hands… They told funny stories about my self-taught grandfather (Vasyl Koloda – locals called him Kastrylia), who painted icons. For a long time, I thought that all families lived like this-filled with dreams and creativity, with stories about their great-grandfathers.

A difficult question: when did I start painting for the first time? I remember how my sister and I squeezed out colored plant sap and painted everything we could get our hands on… In my childhood in the Dnipro region, my family spent a lot of time in the area where there was a beautiful landscape. Part of which was “God’s Mountain” (the name of the locals, who were helped by my old grandfather, who was a local plant expert). The landscape of the mighty Dnipro (river) with all its colors and shades was constantly changing… That mountain remained in my memories and constantly accompanies my creative pursuits as a support.
Can the terrain broadcast its word, its story into space? Perhaps it is a song over the steppes, a girl in the blossom of an apple orchard, people who fought for the right to life, prosperity and poverty, love and war, what the right bank of the Dnipro River will tell the left bank, or perhaps an artist who will come to meet himself… At the moment I am engaged in an artistic dialogue with what surrounds me. The landscapes transform into lines, rhythmically dancing, running further in the viewer’s imagination, and the painting already turns into another fantasy, continues its own dialogue with the world.
