About Maria Shepelenko

Artist from Ukraine, Kyiv. Creating oil paintings. I would describe my painting genre as something close to impressionist / postimpressionist / expressionist. Love to portray common things and usual situations of life to prove - beauty can be anywhere you want.

My artistic life began at the age of 17, when I moved to Warsaw, Poland to get high artistic education.

Now I perform in such techniques as painting (my main occupation), also computer graphic design (Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Indesign), linocut and mosaics.
I make design for logos, posters, business cards and other printed materials.

Events

In 2016 I worked as a painter-animator on the project of "Loving Vincent" movie making in Gdansk, Poland. This is a huge artistic project created by Polish artist Dorota Kobiela and her husband, director Hugh Welchman. The movie is dedicated to famous artist Vincent van Gogh, whose life, art and death are presented in the movie in rare and difficult technique - painting animation.
