Oleksandra Erastova

BIOGRAPHY

Oleksandra Erastova is an artist and graphic designer. She was born in 1988 in the city of Kyiv. She won her first artistic victory at the school and district Olympiads in the autumn of 2000. In the same year, the girl began her studies at a children's art school, which she finished in 2004.

Oleksandra received higher education at the Institute of Advertising. She became a Master of Arts in Graphic Design. During 2016-2019 she attended painting classes at the Ra Gallery and took lessons from Oleksander Vutyanov, who is a well-known painter and fine art restorer.

Since Oleksandra's early age, her family remembers her in a creative role: the girl was always seen around with pencils or paints and brushes. Already at the age of 4 she knew that she would become an artist, but she carried this dream through her young life until 2016, when she decided to fully embark on the artistic path.

Oleksandra has been painting the symbiosis of man and animal since 2016, passionately moving with a personal vision of the animal archetypes of the soul that live in us, and creatively manifesting our strong biological unity with them. She draws her inspiration from the inseparable connection with nature, with which she is infinitely in love.

"One particular detail - these human eyes in animals -is a dangerous feature of the paintings of Yerastova. It creates a world of transformed meanings of everything, which touches the imagination and determination of the artist. Symbiosis of a person with an animal exists here in such a state that can not be forgotten or ignored..."
