Biography

Lena Kolambet was born in Kyiv, Ukraine. 

Lena graduated from the Lviv Polytechnic University. 

She studied painting under the supervision of Valentin Barskov, a talented artist and a teacher of the Odessa Grekov Art School. Additionally, Lena completed the course “Design-methodology. Inspiration management” taught by Saint Petersburg State University . 

In her works, Lena depicts an inner world of a person, his hopes and thoughts in the context of the problems of all humankind.

Her paintings present a unique combination of abstract, figurative forms and drawing with elements of surrealism. She focuses mainly on human nature, woman’s nature in particular. Her pieces are created spontaneously, she is led by emotions and everyday observation. Images of women are subtle and feminine, her subjects are often nude and vulnerable.

 

The combination of illustrative and abstract styles gives her work a dreamy quality and transports our imagination into a whole other world. For greater expressiveness, she uses a mixed technique of painting with acrylic, pastel, ink, and oil.
