Kyiv UFO Plate in art

Olesya Dzhuraeva is a famous virtuoso of Ukrainian easel graphics. Her new project called “Reflection” is inspired by Kyiv and presents more than 20 limited linocuts, half of which are made in the collage technique. Artworks were mostly created within 2014-2018.

“One might like or hate the new buildings made of glass and concrete,” says Olesya Dzhuraeva. “However, just like the electricity long time ago, glass surfaces change my city forever. I am an observer. Nevertheless, I confess: the rhythms that are reflected in glass surfaces fascinate me.”
