"I commissioned Oksana Grineva to do a mural for a client and a custom piece of art work for another client. The mural was to be a replication of a favorite place that my client loved in Kiawah, South Carolina. I gave Oksana pictures of the area and she created a wall mural based on this. It was fabulous and my client loved it. Another client needed a large vertical landscape painting for a dining room. We presented Oksana with pictures that represented what the client wanted the art work to be and feel like .  And Oksana was able to relate to what the client wanted. They were extremely happy with the finished product. I thought it was beautiful.”

"I originally bought a seascape from Oksana Grineva and have been very happy with it for many years.  A beautiful and captivating oil like this compliments my living room greatly. Oksana's talent and skills is obvious as a portrait artist from her web site; I knew she would be perfect to paint a portrait of my son. It was a simple picture taken as he graduated Marine boot camp that she used to paint his portrait. This exquisite oil now hangs in my oak stair case area. If someone had a picture of a loved one, I must say that Oksana Grineva will bring it to life in oil on canvas. I was so happy with her work and quest for perfection that I recently purchased a second portrait; this time, my late father. Needless to say, it was quite superb and Oksana captured him in a way that astonished my mother."

"I hired Oksana to paint an oil portrait of my late father using a black and white photo from the 1940's. She had amazed me as she captured his life like image in color on canvas. Her skills are among the elite!"

 "I was captivated by the expression and colors of the Oksana paintings displayed in the gallery . I was especially drawn to one painting in particular-so much so- that I insisted my husband come look. Now the painting is on display in our house, and we get to enjoy it every day!!  What a talented artist you are--our painting seems to come to life."

Oksana Artist News

Newsflash 1 The still lifes and trompe-l'oeil artworks featured in "Feast the Eye, Fool the Eye" and "Visual Deceptions" could be thought of as the precursor to the concept of "virtual reality." Trompe-l'oeil paintings have been a European favorite since birds were tempted to fly through the painted windows of Pompeii. The genre became a highly-developed specialty in Rembrandt's time, when artists competed with each other to see who could fool viewers into thinking their depicted objects were real.

Newsflash 3 Oksana is a mural artist who has enjoyed painting murals in schools, offices, homes, restaurants, churches and many other institutions. In her 20 years of mural painting, Oksana has painted literally hundreds of murals. A long list of references is available upon request.

News Flash 4 Murals can be used to create a mood, make a statement or simply provide beauty in either a residential or commercial setting. Murals can be created in various sizes and can accommodate all monetary budgets. I can paint murals directly on walls, floors, ceilings, buildings or anywhere your imagination desires. I can also create murals on canvas so the original work of art can be as mobile as its owner. Murals can be created for formal environments, children’s rooms, or in public places…I simply use paint to express your imagination and dreams. I cover all areas - Chicago Murals.

Newsflash 2 Painting murals is much different from painting smaller works. A person is completely overwhelmed and absorbed by the painting itself. Much like those who do large scale sculpture who I've talked with, the scale of the work makes me think of myself more as a illustionist than an artist. Painting murals is somewhere between fine art and house painting. It's hard to get too snooty when you're up several stories on a scaffold with the wind blowing twenty-five miles per hour, covered in paint and eating lunch out of a paper bag.
