Olga Vayshbein

I am an artist, illustrator.

Majority of my works reflect my relationships with the surrounding world. They represent all my fears, my hopes and my philosophy toward life and death.

In my works, I combine monotype and drawing. I prefer the monotype technique because it communicates my emotional state in the most accurate way. Contrast between shades of black and white, and all that lies in between: delicate half tones and barely noticeable undertones help me ideally in representing my vision of the microcosm. I feel, there is also some sort of interaction with the Universe. My monotypes begin as an abstract, random strokes of ink on paper; gradually turning into something animated and meaningful, according  to my current state of mind and mood. Usually, I am completely in charge of the working process, yet sometimes my work takes the lead.

My artworks are somewhat like Rorschach test, in which every viewer could apply their own imagination and give personal interpretation to the subject matter and the narrative. Every person will see and process the work differently. My art is more than black and white pictures; I see it as transfiguration of the subconscious, paradigm of emotional states, profundity of the sublime.
