Musatov’s works feature his signature conceptual meaning and intellectual simplicity.
Graphic artist Alena Olasyuk is currently living in China. She graduated from Beijing Fashion Technology Institute and is a participant of numerous prestigious art exhibitions and contests. Her distinctive artwork offers genuine plainness of forms filled with whimsical philosophical meaning. It is hard to miss the oriental influence on Olasyuk’s creations. Alena Olasyuk was born and raised in Ukraine, however she's been living in China for quite a while now. Graphic artwork by Olasyuk showcases oriental ideas of duality of things and simplicity of forms. Art creations of both artists feature minimalistic design, monochromatic color palette and perfection of geometrical forms.
The Event is hosted by Art Space Sky Art Foundation and Sergey Makhno Gallery. Sky Art Foundation was established in Ukraine in autumn 2014 as a private initiative with the purpose of support and development of a new generation of Ukrainian painters, working in the sphere of contemporary art, and also for promotion of international cultural exchange and integration of Ukrainian culture in the world art context. Fund actively carries out exhibition and charity activities, organizes international art-projects, produces cultural events with participation of Ukrainian painters and provides grants for talented artists.

Now, he creates collections of unique objects, successfully builds houses, hotels and cottage towns, implements interior spaces for apartments, restaurants, offices and boutiques with his personally designed furniture and décor elements, and engages in social projects. The main directions of Makhno Architects are contemporary minimalism, eclecticism, and loft styles. Collecting Ukrainian ceramics, especially decorative zoomorphic sculptures, has led Sergey Makhno to the birth of his dream: to design a Museum of Ukrainian Ceramics.
