Oksana Mas

"I feel deep inside that a new era in art will soon appear, and that we'll get away from superficial art that leaves brutal impressions", Oksana recently told me. "Hopefully, this current financial crisis will help people understand that spiritual values are more important than material."

Now it is the time of individual practice. Oksana Mas with her passion for experimenting, with her foreignness to today's popular brands, is in symbiosis with our times. She avoids repeating herself. She goes her way without falling in the limitations of progressive or traditional, commercial or intellectual (conceptual), not mainstream and not on the edge. All this makes her art interesting. Asking "What's next?" does not make any sense.
