From the artist:

I am Ukrainian American artist originally based out of Chicago and recently have relocated to San Francisco.
I am super happy to be here and participate in the Regional Art Battle. I am exited to show case my art as well as to meet many talented artists. Last Art Battle I have participated in Bay Area showed what a great audience there is and how much support artists get in Bay Area. For me as an artist, number one thing that drives my desire to paint and make more art, is seeing faces of people who look at my art and see something special for each of you . Support of audience , friends and family is extremely important for me and I appreciate all of you for being part of the event. Thank you ALL !

Below is my information:
Oxana Belka is a versatile artist intent on expressing the spectrum of emotions and feelings through colors.

Belka’s work falls under abstract surrealism with emphasis on bright colors to bring more light and positive energy to the world. Her work spans a great range of mediums such as oil and watercolor painting, large scale murals, and other independent projects combining art and sculpture. Oxana was a lead artist for an art project "Connections" at the Burning Man festival in 2019 which showcased the metamorphosis of the human connection through ten uniquely painted mannequins, illumination at night and music piece. Outside of the Burning man installation , Oxana paints murals to create interactive space.

Primary art media remains acrylic on canvas or watercolor on paper and later processed digitally for 3D effect as well as movement .And digital processing is my new found passion of recent months.

Australian painter Jason describes his “work [as] ranging from cute to macabre, with an ever present twist of friendly awkwardness and repugnant humor.” Sometimes Jason “tries to engage viewers in uncomfortable [yet] familiar feelings about humanity with overtones of pop culture, graffiti, theism, and self examination in today’s [fast paced] culture.”

Woo hoo!
