Kseniya Oudenot is a Ukrainian born, British artist living and working in Paris and London. Through a convergence of interest in nature, science and time perception; her art explores the allegorical resonance and fantasy involved in man-made, altered nature within our society and juxtaposition of time.
A prolific cross-disciplinary artist, Oudenot has developed a vast body of sculptures, paintings, drawings and art installations.
Her early design career creations utilized high tech materials and were exhibited in the Science Museum in London, the Science Gallery in Dublin, and were showcased on BBC and Sky.
Trained in academic painting, Kseniya then moved to UK to study Performance Design at St. Martins College.
She is a multi-award-winning designer with works ranging from art to theatre costumes and high fashion, as well as projects for the London Royal Opera House, Scottish Ballet and Alexander McQueen. Her background influences are frequently spotted in her dramatic shapes, rich textures and bold use of contrasting components.
Her fine art signature is the use of small ephemeral particles, both natural and man-made materials, "sand, glitter, crushed rocks, leaves, flowers, beads or dust as a reminder of time passing, dust storms sweeping away memories and feeling of change emerging."
Hailed as a “Best New Talent” by The Wall Street Journal, Vogue and many other publications, Oudenot is now focusing her talents to creating fine art.
