LENA’s pic of choice was her wearing this simple mens dress shirt at the opening of New York City Sub-culture at the famed music and arts venue CBGB’s, and she looks stunning!
A self taught (outside/visionary) artist raised in rural Ukraine with an incredible appetite for literature which took her to Ukraine’s National University in Kiev to study journalism however life changing events landed her in suburban Florida and feeling isolated began to paint. What she created was beautiful and her friends asked if they could purchase pieces all of which started her journey into the ‘art world’.
10024 New York New York was the next step with a gala opening in a Manhattan castle titled ‘I Am’ which was the first showing of her works in automatism which are in themselves nuevo to the art scene and surrealism in particular. LENA’s work was also being showed by Alexandar Oppenihiemer at his W57th Street gallery Nexus Projects
The ‘art world’ can be a soul crushing

Don’t let the his picture deceive you, as it was a photo shoot Chris staged for Getaround, a peer to peer car sharing company, and was goofing about wanting the perfect Facebook brag pic.
Chris’s main goal is to let LENA create. So if your ever doing business with artLENA, Chris (me:-) will be at your service.
