This Artist Creates Romantic Fantasy Realism Paintings
According to Elena Shichko: “My name is Elena Shichko. I am an artist and photographer from Belarus. I paint with acrylic and oil on canvas.
The stylistic direction that I use in my works, I would describe as romantic fantasy realism. I am attracted to bright expressive images, romantic and sensual. They do not live in the real world, their world is a world of fantasy, illusions and myths. This artificially constructed world reflects the inner state of a person’s soul.
In the series of still lifes, I am not interested in a documentary interpretation of nature, but in stylization and color harmony. I am attracted by the romantic component, the image and the internal state of objects.
In my works, I strive to portray a combination of the real and the fictional, the boundlessness of the energy of nature and objects. Each of my works is a journey into a new unique world!”
