"Bloom" is a captivating artwork that embodies the essence of minimalism and sustainable creativity. Crafted entirely from recycled paper pulp, this piece breathes new life into discarded materials, transforming them into a visually striking and thought-provoking composition. Olga explores the different variations that are possible in the composition and plays with the shapes and colors. The artist employed a meticulous process, utilizing leftover paper from previous projects and transforming it into circular shapes resembling delicate eggshells or petals. Through careful manipulation and shaping, the circles took on a distinctive form, reminiscent of organic elements found in nature. Once dried, the paper pulp circles solidified, creating a shell-like texture that adds depth and intrigue to the artwork. To enhance the aesthetic appeal, Olga painted the front side of each circle with a matte acrylic paint, imbuing the composition with vibrant and lively colors. The juxtaposition of the bright hues against the textured surfaces evokes a sense of fragility and resilience, resembling the delicate yet resilient nature of blooming flowers. The circles are artfully arranged and affixed in nine rows to the base using foam stickers, which not only add elevation but also create a subtle play of light and shadow. "Bloom" encapsulates the artist's intention to explore themes of transformation, rebirth, and the beauty that emerges from sustainability. It serves as a visual reminder of the potential inherent in repurposed materials, and the capacity for discarded objects to find new purpose and vitality. Through its minimalist aesthetic and innovative use of recycled paper pulp, "Bloom" invites viewers to contemplate the delicate balance between nature and human consumption, while celebrating the beauty that can emerge from sustainable artistic practices.

Olga passionate about art ever since she was a kid. She feels like she was born to be an artist. The choice of profession was obvious to her. Olga formerly worked as an illustrator, graphic designer and she painted photorealistic portraits on commission before turning to full-time paper artist. Skorokhod experimented with different techniques and materials while she was in Ukraine in hopes of finding her own art style in which she could constantly develop and be recognized worldwide. But it wasn’t until she completely stepped out of her comfort zone and moved to the U.S. that she eventually found it. Art is necessary for Olga. It’s like breathing. You can’t live without oxygen, so Olga can’t live without art. She craved to create. Since Olga had a small budget and couldn’t afford paint and canvas, she started working with the most affordable printer paper. It turns out paper was exactly what Olga has been looking for because she always liked monochromatic high textured artworks, and cutting by hand was a form of healing meditation for her. "If you are a professional artist and you have a sense of destiny to create, then you can make a piece of art from anything. It doesn't matter what materials and tools to use."
