Besides running her own management consulting business Olha Bosak also seeks to inspire people through art. She owes her love for beauty and art to her father, for whom she painted her first oil artwork when she was 26.

The Academy was founded by Oskar Kokoschka as the School of Vision in Hohensalzburg Fortress, which is the oldest of its kind in Europe. Olha’s artwork was noticed in New York and published in the book «International Contemporary Artists», as well as on resources of «Art Takes Manhattan».
Her artworks were on display in Ukraine, Austria, Italy, France, the US and Canada. In Kyiv, she held two personal art exhibitions «Live Colorfully!» and «Live Free!» that was implemented in cooperation with German, Hungarian, and Austrian Embassies. Her personal art exhibitions took place in New York at the United Nations General Assembly building, Ottawa and Toronto.
In Milan, she was selected to be part of an artistic project «Woman’s Essence» that represents the contemporary worldwide women artists and presented her art. In Paris, she was awarded with «Woman ART Award 2017».
Her paintings are constantly on the temporary exhibitions in the offices of private companies and are in private collections in Ukraine, Austria, Italy, France, Norway, the United States and Canada.
Feedback on Olha Bosak art by
Italian art critic Laura Francesca Di Trapani (Milan, Italy):
Each canvas is like a book whose story is told through colour, its combinations, mixtures, and chasing. The materiality of the pigments seems to be like words to express concepts such as freedom, dignity, beauty, love, values to preserve, or autobiographical themes such as the Ukrainian Revolution. The painting belongs to her since very young age to bring its own message and transmit its own thought. A large magma of colour that looks like the sea as well as overwhelming lava flow that transforms everything.
Ukrainian art critic Olena Haluzevska (Kyiv, Ukraine):
Fantastic positive, bright attitude, sublime and pure art of soul – that is Olha Bosak’s artwork. Thank you for the inspiration!
Italian curator Paola Trevisan (from invitation to participate in exhibition in Bologna, Italy):
Your singular abstract language – with the interaction of forms, textures and colours connection – creates rich and emotional results like in 'Peace despite Anxiety' or 'Relationship between Souls'. We believe that your vibrant and intense art research together with your creative imaginary, will add personal and unique inputs to this upcoming exhibition.
