The Dean Art Studio is happy to launch new solo show of Olga Melnykova on 23rd of March.

Olga is Ukrainian Artist, who came to Ireland after fleeing the war back in February, 2022. 

Olga is working in mix techniques in her own style, creating so called “art puzzles” – separate pieces that represent one big thing if put together but also as separate object when put apart. Non surprisingly that her first solo show in Ireland is named “Puzzles of Life” – as this would represent every Ukrainian, every person fleeing the war or refugee, whose lives are broken and who are still trying to put all their life puzzles back together, or better yet, create something new.  

With the exhibition the author wants to show that even in new circumstances the life can be full of colors, new perspectives and interesting opportunities, if you stay strong and motivated. 

The event is a tribute to thousands of Ukrainians who are currently residing in Ireland trying to build their lives from scratch and to all people, who had to flee the war hoping for a better future for their children. 

Olga is popular contemporary artist, having her solo exhibitions in Kyiv, Ukraine, participating in charity projects and creative collaborations. Her works are represented in private collections in France, Italy, Monaco and USA.  

The exhibition is supported by SCOOP Foundation and Association of Ukrainians in Ireland (AURI)
