Oksana Mas is a Ukrainian artist working in installation, sculpture, video and painting. Her work often poses questions of artistic tradition and craft, utilising Ukrainian customary objects and repositioning them against religious iconography. In 2011, Mas represented the Ukraine at the Venice Biennale with her piece Post-vs-Proto-Renaissance. The artwork was the prototype to her subsequent work Altarpiece of Nations; a replica of the Ghent alter piece completed by 15thcentury Flemish artists, the Van Eycks brothers, made completely with traditional hand-painted wooden egg shells.

Born in 1969 in Odessa (Ukraine), Oksana Mas has shown her work internationally from Tokyo to Geneva, Kiev, Moscow, London and Miami. Her paintings are held in both private and public collections.
