My name is Olga Oreshyna and I would like to introduce myself as a Canadian emerging artist who is deeply passionate about woodworking. The source of my inspiration comes from abandoned pieces of wood. In my imagination I give them a second chance of the life. All wood for my works were already used before. I hope this is my small contribution to green building. Rather than cutting down trees to get the needed material, reusing wood is just as good if not better. This is my way of making a difference, at the same time I’m sharing a positive message on how we can recycle and reuse in creative ways. My artworks reflect my contribution to make our fragile environment more healthy and beautiful. So much plastic, metal, concrete surround us in our everyday life. Creating these amazing wooden structures I feel huge energy coming over my hands.
In contemporary design it’s not unusual to see a mixture of different shapes and forms, blending styles creates bold accents and generates symbolic meaning throughout the space. Think of adding an art piece, that was designed and created to make a grand statement. Highly distinctive contemporary wood wall sculpture, the unique composition of intricate shape formations will add a character and incredible feature in your place.
Bring “Wow” factor to your space! Bold and eye-catching contemporary art piece makes an incredible feature and a strong focal point, adds personality and character to your place, just by being so attention-drawing and unique.
Elaborate and magical conversation starters, that push the boundaries of traditional techniques and allow for more imaginative and expressive interpretations.
Looking for a custom piece of art? You may want to invest in stunning one of a kind original artwork instead of the cheap mass-produced fake pieces from big chain stores. Whether you are already familiar with purchasing original artwork or not, not everybody knows that it’s always possible to commission a custom artwork directly from an artist. It’s a great option if you are looking for something unique and special.
This set was custom made for a specific location and needs. The client wanted to display something beautiful on a blank, tall wall that leads to a loft alongside their floating stairs and also to benefit for sound dampening, to meet both aesthetical and acoustical needs.
Each single piece of wood is cut, shaped, detailed, carved, sanded and assembled by hand with passion, love and care. The assemblage is almost done and next step is a painting and fine finishing. Turquoise was chosen as colour preference.
The first layer is always a wood protection. Acrylic painting is a next step. And then, hand sanding is applied to enhance wood grains and knots in order to show the real beauty of wood and emphasize the structure of shape formations. Last layer is fine finishing to protect the sculpture itself.
One of my favourite part to get pictures from a happy and completely satisfied clients. Great to see the pieces in their new home.

Wabi-sabi is a Japanese philosophy that includes the acceptance and appreciation of simplicity, the ordinary, and the imperfect and it can be described as finding beauty in things that are impermanent and incomplete. Wabi-Sabi is an aesthetic, a state of mind, a mix of emotions, and a way of perceiving life . . .
Wabi-sabi concept remind me that we are all transient beings on this planet, that our bodies, as well as the material world around us, are in the process of returning to dust. Through Wabi-sabi, I learn to embrace the beauty of the old and the mystical, where the presence of cracks and scratches are considered to be symbolic of the passing of time, weather…
I love it, it so perfectly fits how I like to work and create. I have always been drawn to weathered objects that have character, that symbolize a sense of timelessness and history, each with their own story and season. I find this practice to be a beautiful, meditative one that brings me great calm and peace.
The fundamental principle of wabi sabi concept is connection to earth and natural materials, and it focuses on organic textures and earthy hues. I feel a strong connection with nature when working with wood. Texture imitates a living earth, while a soft scent of wooden surfaces takes me away to the forest.
I use recycled wood for my works, which I collect by myself in different places. Wood accumulates and radiates powerful energy. When you touch wood, it seems to be alive and breathing. The intricate grain patterns tell a story. Knots, little cracks, and each single piece is unique with own history and memory, and exceptional beauty in the marks leaved by time.
Bringing a little wabi sabi into your place can warm it up, making the atmosphere of your home more earthy and natural. The beauty of wabi sabi style is that it’s always evolving and something special and unique.

Treat yourself or your loved ones with original piece of art, and it will be a very personal, unique, and thoughtful gift that can be treasured for a lifetime.
In today’s busy digital world, all of us understand the importance of maintaining a conection with nature. I strive bringing the elements of outdoors into the indoor space, and creating art from my ultimate source of inspiration: my love of nature.
These times are strange and unsettling. The whole world is on pause. A time for reflection and an opportunity to look inward. A time to take notice and appreciate the simple things in life. A time to be grateful for what we have …. and for those around us that help make our days a little bit better
Immersing myself in the making of something is incredibly calming. It’s something I’m really trying to do more regularly as the restlessness of self-isolation and social distancing kick in.
