Many are lost in the streams of blood. The lost souls of people from whom the war took away their closest relatives. The fate of those who lost limbs and will never return to their previous life is lost.
Streams of blood washed away the names of those brutally killed, mutilated by torture, or buried in mass graves. They are lost, and that wound will always be there. It is a joint pain of the whole society.
Everything was mixed in blood streams: blood, earth, energy. Silhouettes of people on the canvas are like targets in a shooting range. Like the matches heads, they reach for the light in vain. Everyone has a core, a character, and a goal. However, they no longer burn, and they will never burn.
The girl was born in Storozhynka, in Bukovina. Drawing drew her in from the first stroke — it was how she expressed herself, discovered herself, and got to know the world. Playing with colors and light became like breathing, and Yana was no longer separated from them.
Later, she graduated with honors from the art school, and in 2004, after the art school in Vyzhnytsia, she entered the Chernivtsi National University.
By the way, sometimes it wasn’t easy. Yana experienced a period when she could not draw and develop in this field. Іt went on for years. She recalls: «I felt as if I was losing myself, I could not breathe, and I was slowly dying. The only thing I wanted was to create». Then all the savings were spent on paints, canvases, brushes, and the first easel. Finally, everything made sense!
Since 2017, Yana has been exclusively engaged in creating oil and watercolor paintings. And look at how masterfully each one is executed! You can learn more about Yana on her personal page.
