Painted Egg Mosaics by Oksana Mas
Painted Egg Mosaics by Oksana Mas. Talented Ukrainian artist Oksana Mas lives and works between Odessa, Stockholm, Barcelona, Moscow. She creates incredible egg portraits from hand-painted wooden eggs in mosaic technique. Her unique artwork of Easter egg mosaics was exhibited at different art exhibitions, the Venice Biennale. She finds inspiration in traditional Ukrainian painted wooden eggs – krashenki. Oksana doesn’t paint these eggs herself, they are ready-painted by different people to celebrate Easter, she is just experimenting with them to create art. So if you come close to the installation you may admire separate pieces of her creation, and the same pleasure you’ll have looking at the pictures at a distance.
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 Mas explains. “Hopefully, this current financial crisis will help people understand that spiritual values are more important than material.”
