In fact, Ukrainian artist Oksana Mas lives and works between Odessa, Stockholm, Barcelona and Moscow. She creates incredible egg portraits from hand-painted wooden eggs in mosaic technique. Her unique artwork of Easter egg mosaics appeared at different art exhibitions, and in particular, in the Venice Biennale.
According to Oksana, she finds inspiration in traditional Ukrainian painted wooden eggs – krashenki. Noteworthy, Oksana doesn’t paint these eggs herself, they are already painted by different people to celebrate Easter, and she is just experimenting with them to create her 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.

“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.”
