Olex Wlasenko has based his studio practice in Oshawa, Ontario after earning a Master of Fine Art at The University of Western Ontario in 2000. Prior to this, he graduated with distinction from the Ontario College of Art (OCA) in 1994, going on to complete a degree in Fine Arts at the University of Guelph. In his final year at OCA, Wlasenko was awarded the Eric Freifield Award. In 2001 and 2011, he won top prize at the national juried drawing exhibition organized at the John B. Aird Gallery.
The artist regularly receives grants from Canada Council for the Arts and from the Ontario Arts Council. In 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006 the artist won Best Drawing Award at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. Wlasenko has exhibited extensively in Toronto and London, ON, nationally in Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Dawson City, Yukon, and internationally in Florence, Italy and Kyiv, Ukraine. After completing his graduate studies, Wlasenko worked as Assistant Curator at The Robert McLaughlin Gallery (RMG) in Oshawa, Ontario. There he organized over twenty photography exhibitions featuring vintage prints that document the historical development of his hometown of Oshawa. Olexander currently holds the position of Curator at Station Gallery in Whitby, Ontario since early 2008 where he has curated over 70 exhibitions.
