The world of Alexander Onishenko

Alexandr Onishenko is recognized around the world as an expressive and sensitive artist, by his unique Black Canvas technique.

One of the most successful artists in the Czech Republic came to this country with few possessions and began selling his work, alongside with artists on the Charles Bridge.

Alexandr Onishenko, Ukrainian by birth, was not there long. The quality of his work shone out he was offered exhibitions not just in this country but also in Germany, France, Spain, U.K., USA etc.

Onishenko quickly went on to open his own gallery where you can see his new impressionist paintings.

He breathes life into even inanimate objects giving them a vibrancy and personality of their own. One can explore his landscapes, see around corners in his forests, fly with his birds, gallop with horses, explore Gothic courtyards or soar with him over the rooftops of Prague. Onishenko’s paintings are full of energy and, although impressionist in style, rich in detail. His are not one-dimensional canvases, one can return to them again and again, each time discovering new depths, and hidden secrets.

His world emerges out of a black square where every bright stroke of his brush reveals the depths of darkness.

These powerful and condensed strokes splash out scenes that seem to push the image out of two dimensions into a three dimensional world.

The Master invokes in us a feeling of immense pleasure as we recognize this world in his paintings.

His masterpieces can be relished forever and there is always a new meaning and sense to be discovered as we stand by them. 

This is what the talent of a true artist is all about. To create new meaning which you find on your own without asking the Master to hand you the clue for access or to prompt where to look for it.
