The Ohio Artist Registry (OAR) is an exciting opportunity for artists to share their work, connect with the creative community, and establish an online presence—all on a free, virtual platform! The OAR encourages artists working in all art forms, throughout Ohio and beyond,  to create a profile, which allows them to better promote themselves and their work. Being listed in the OAR provides artists with new opportunities to share their work with clients, galleries, patrons, and audiences. A listing in the OAR does not confer an endorsement, approval, or verification by the Ohio Arts Council.

Artist Statement

Kostiantyn is a bas relief artist who has worked in wood but prefers the fluidity of plaster. Already as a Russian boy of three, he loved to sketch beautiful bouquets of flowers for his Mother. As a young man in the Ukraine he used his God given talent to design and carve beautiful wooden boxes for gifts for special people in his life. Needing to enter the work force, he began working in construction and interior design. Left over plaster from jobs was not wasted but became bas relief floral designs on walls of friends. Continuing in construction and drywall work after moving to the US, Kostiantyn has worked in replacing and restoring walls and ceilings in museums, theaters, and homes, leaving behind final touches of beautiful bas relief plaster designs. He also enjoys creating smaller framed bas reliefs from plaster, and can work both from the heart creatively as well as from an actual request for a relief of specific design
