Most people paint with a brush but it takes a special artist to do it with their camera. Olya Turcihin joined our Arte Fuse family in 2013 and has shown her sheer cinematic prose with the pictures she took for us. Last November 11th, we were so proud of her solo show Mesmerism at the unique boutique that is an art oasis, Something in Mind. Based on her drive by series of taking photographs as the car is moving that it produced the fleeting blur, ephemeral quality and magical tone that left everyone mesmerized by her talent and technique. The photographs of the woods, sky and expanse of land were painterly and with the wisp of lines from swift motion denoting time suspended also blew one’s mind of whether she is painting with her camera. Survey says YES and the effect mesmerizing gets a unanimous thumbs up! Go and get mesmerized by the talented and artistic work of our new Photo Editor for ARTE F– USE. It’s a new day for us all and we look forward to have Olya make more images that will continually blow you away!
