Artist statement: “My paintings guide you to the magnificent world of water. You can imagine how it is to live next to the ocean even if you don’t.” Alexandra Velichko
Alexandra Velichko born in 1984, lives and works in Kyiv, Ukraine. Her works are mostly focused on water in its different shapes. Raging ocean, deep blue sea, translucent waves or relaxing river views are the heroes of her paintings. She lives in Kyiv on a bank of the main river of Ukraine – Dnipro. To the question: “From where do you get your inspiration?”, she always confidently responds: “From nature.” Her love for the water started in 2011 after her first diving experience (she certified diver). Underwater life deeply impressed her. Later on sailing came barging into her life and she could not resist any more. Water horizons, sunsets, sunrises, clouds became her endless inspiration. She dedicated her life to recreation of those beauties on her canvas. Her works are in private collections throughout the whole world: Brazil, Australia, Philippines, USA, All Europe.
