About Olena Tsilujko

In my work, I outline the vivid moments of everyday life that I want to remember or even to return to again. Everyday life has a far greater impact on one's personality than we think. I focus my attention on those details that make the usual object unique. Uniqueness can be either beautiful or funny or ugly. I believe that reality does not need to be decorated, I appreciate its exclusiveness.
Born in 1973 in Lviv (Ukraine)
I create dolls and paintings.
