Oleh Denysenko is a Ukrainian artist, born in 1961. His etchings delight the imagination with their fantastical & historical themes and complex, intricate detail. The fineness of line and rich imagery reflect the very strong and active print tradition of Eastern Europe. Denysenko’s works are original, similar to medieval graphic art, saturated with symbols that urge viewers to decipher the meaning of being. The artist’s works have been exhibited more than 300 times in many countries.
