“The characteristic of Oleinikov’s works is the ominous silence and
morbid life of depicted persons. Still, the necessary dynamic is accomplished
between outer calm and inner virility trough a technique that involves
interlace of brush, chalk and pen applied together with oil paint, pastels,
crayon and pencil. In this play of painting and drawing, delusive shapes are
hidden behind the network of lines and reveal only upon closer inspection.
Oleinikov’s fictive and always autobiographical characters are lonesome
fighters in a quest for the meaning of life. Far from the crowds and everyday
life, they wonder between the worlds.” (Susan Wang)
