Artwork of Yelena Schantz

Hello! Thank you for visiting my website. Here, my paintings can be found (done in oil paint on canvas), grouped in cycles.

I work in surrealistic scenes, representing myths and legends, sometimes traditional and sometimes of my own design, asking questions for which the viewer must try to find the answers. My canvas is a picture of other realities, as I lives their life and preserves their mysterious histories


  • The cycle Celestial Gateways is devoted to a legend about gates to other worlds. A creative attempt in one picture to connect two different plots.
  • Cycle Magra is devoted to an uninhabited planet running on an orbit of a red huge star in deep space.
  • The diptych From the Cradle to the Grave represents the beginning and the possible end of a civilization.
  • The cycle Beyond the edge of reality - a mixture of a fantasy, mysticism, philosophy and allegories.
  • The cycle Legends and myths - illustrations from my imaginations on the theme of myths and legends.
  • The cycle Mysteries of the Earth opens mysterious sides of the nature, and their communication with humanity.
  • The cycle Other worlds tells about another's worlds, living the life in a distant "Orchid" nebula.
