Oleg Dou Best Artists List

What Oleg Dou does with his digital images is touching, extremely human and terribly fragile. I love his ability to edit his way to humanity, finding the best glow just below the surface of an ordinary photo. In seeking the dead side of the living and the living side of the dead, Dou has touched upon a curiosity that dwells in most. The humanity in a manikin comes completely from the viewer and artist.

I find it extremely important to do what I do ‘beautifully’; Not for beauty itself, per se, but more so as a tool that makes my ideas both interesting and workable.

Being electrocuted when I was two years old is the first thing I remember.
