Artist Oleynik Artem

Country: Ukraine
City: Kharkov

Oleynik Artem was born in 1982 in Nikopol’, Ukraine. As a child he moved to Kharkiv, where he studied in the «I.Y. Repin children\'s art school». At that time he already showed love towards drawing and painting. Best of all he liked to picture cars, planes and other machines.

After leaving school he was serving in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, where he was a painter at the staff headquarter. With great diligence and eagerness he drew cars, military equipment and weapons to the last detail, sharpening his skills and developing the own method of painting.

Sometime after that Artem entered the «Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Arts». The art studies played a crucial part in Artem’s creative activity. Here he gained invaluable experience, essentially improved quality of painting and got the hang of painting in oils.

The main topic of his works is auto racing. As a true fan of Formula 1 he with incredible love reproduces on his canvas the bright episodes of race, beauty and elegance of bolids, concentration and strain of pilots, joy and exultance of fans and everything connected with this exciting sport — Formula 1. Bolids at Artem’s pictures astonish and enrapture with their accuracy, details and photographic likeness.

How skillfully and professionally the artist reproduces motion and speed! Bolid at Artem’s pictures is not static, it’s not at a stop, it’s moving or, to be more exact, flying at a rattling rate, taking everything away…

The harmony of accuracy and spirit of speed makes the paintings by Artem interesting and inimitative, catches the eye and makes the one examine them finding something new each time.

The paintings by Artem were presented at the first ever Formula 1 Russian Grand Prix in Sochi from 9 to 12 October 2014.
