Oresta Kinash is a professional choral conductor and vocal teacher and a self-taught artist. She was born in Ukraine in 1982 in the small town Sambir, Lviv region, in a family of musicians.
In this artwork, with the helps of colors, I demonstrate the dynamics, the energy in its various forms. The colors of light and sun, the colors of the sky, the color of purity and black for contrast are used here, and at the end - a little passion with warmth.
Her entire life has been devoted to music and singing. For many years she worked as a teacher of music and vocals, and was a leader and conductor of many choirs in Ukraine. She mainly specializes in sacred, liturgical music. For now she lives in Warsaw (Poland). There, Oresta also works as a conductor and leader of choirs in Ukrainian church in Warsaw, where liturgies of the Eastern Byzantine tradition take place.
Warsaw at night. At this time it is especially magnetic and I wanted to convey this magnetism on the canva
Sacred and musical art has always impressed and inspired her to high thoughts, dreams and unusual deeds. Perhaps that's why painting became her hobby and the beautiful part of artistic and private life. At first it was a desire to just create and nothing serious was planned. Over time, drawing grew into a need and became a way of thinking and expressing feelings, mood and dreams.
In art, as well as in music, high technique is very useful, but also the heart and spirit must be present.
Interestingly, even close friends and relatives did not know that Oresta draws and has this talent. However, there were also many artists, sculptors and architects in the Oresta's family generation. Now she jokes that she inherited this gene from some kind ancestor from another world. When the information opened, many people were pleasantly surprised and began to ask for an exhibition of her paintings.
Well-known artists who inspired artist Oresta Kinash are: Albrecht Durer, Gustav Klimt, Hieronimus Bosch, Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent van Gogh and Ukrainian artist and poet Taras Shevchenko. Today, this list is supplemented by new names of contemporary artists who also inspire with their brilliant talents and masterpieces of art.
So, in 2020, Oresta's first exhibition took place in Warsaw. That solo-exhibition was named "Dreamland." It was in Сonference room at the Basilian Monastery and was charitable. The artist supports Ukrainian soldiers in the occupied part of her country with her art. The funds raised were used to rehabilitate the wounded. Her life credo has always been peace and love of beauty. She believes that love and kindness can heal wounds and save someone's life.
Very light and graceful artwork. It can support the spirit of youth and at the same time contains the perfection of thought.
Thanks to art, I began to understand music more deeply and see it in colors. Now drawing has become such a natural need for me as singing or breathing.
I have dedicated this artwork to business men who love art and find time for beauty. Saturated tones can be a decoration of a library or office. The artwork is done with a knife, fast, decisive movements. Because such are inherent in real men
For wider recognition, Oresta also decided to take the next step and began to participate in international competition and content with professional artists.
