“I dream my painting, and I paint my dream” Vincent Van Gogh Oksana Bezpiatko was born and raised in Ukraine. In 1990 she immigrated to Canada with her family. Her love for art and painting started at a very young age where she explored different ways of expressing her creativity. She studied drawing, painting, graphics and textile design at Academy of Fine Art in Ukraine, following classical European traditions. But she was particularly taken by an ancient method of painting on fabric with hot wax and dyes. “Hot Batik” is a rare and unique technique, technique of absolute devotion that prevents almost no mistake. It is the process of painting with melted hot wax and water soluble dyes. Based canvas can be cotton or silk. Layers of colors step by step are blocked with melted hot wax applied with brush. The effect that can be achieved through resistant dyeing often results in amazing, unpredictable textures and tone, simply one-of-a-kind. Using this rare technique she creates the world that is totally unique, that comes from within her soul. Each artwork convey a one-of-a-kind view of the world though the eyes of the artist . This view is colored by her individual beliefs and experience. No specific theme for painting, just reflection of an observation of daily life, our surrounding…. “This is my world… join me and enjoy…” Her work have been exhibited in art galleries in Ukraine and Canada.

Until a batik painting is complete, the artist experiences several doubts and adventure for the final outcome because in case of an error it is almost impossible to be corrected.
