About Olga Akasi
Ukrainian artist, the unique in the Ukraine, who works in the technology of old masters, without being neither the restorer, nor the museum worker. Akasi is an artist of the new generation with an original manner and theme characteristic for all her works. However, she never follows methods of actual art specializing in criticizing the public taste or perception standards. The artist has worked out her own aesthetic worldview through the prism of poetry. Her creative range is rather wide and includes the best in painting from Renaissance to contemporary period. What runs all through Olha Akasi's creative work, in addition to her style and technique, is stress on images according to which one can live». The Day Newspaper For our so-called post-human society, where not only "God is dead", but also, together with him, man is, Olga Akasi as an artist (and, mainly, as a portraitist) gives a rebirth to the human. This idea is reflected brilliantly in Akasi's images which we may call phainomena, or those which appear and are present in light (of soul) and its reflections.
