Olena Blank's works are in private collections in Europe, Russia and the United States.
"I am scared of unknown places and foreign countries. I am used to my apartment, my cats, this sky and this land. I want to live here and do what I am doing here. It's good for me."
"What Olena Blank is creating is impossible to characterize through banal craft affiliation. Her work is a great example of well-known technologies in hands of an intelligent, talented and deeply sensual person transforming into a mysterious game, a labyrinth, that you wouldn't want to leave."
"Thinking of Olena Blank's place in contemporary art I clearly understood that she is a tuning-fork."
"Olena Blank is one of the few artists that conscientiously ignore "market relations" and despite all the obstacles remain committed to pure art."
