“We are a mother and daughter team, Oksana Prokopenko and Lulu Lutri. Lulu is 15 and has been around her mom’s, Oksana’s, studio ever since she was born. Lulu has been actively helping in the past several years, particularly public art murals (Lower East side’s 100 Gates angel wings mural on 145 Essex St is still up and very popular), gallery exhibitions set up and gallery hours (most recently Oksana’s solo exhibition at X Gallery in Harlem and Hopper-Goetschius Museum in NJ).
Prokopenko’s works have been acquired into the permanent collections of museums in theåÊUSAåÊand Italy.
To quote Margo Grant, the Museum of Russian Art’s director, “”The soul of Prokopenko’s work is in her walking that fine line
between the transcendent and the ordinary.””åÊåÊProkopenko has an upcoming solo exhibition at the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture in NYC.
This piano is Lulu’s idea and she is the driving force behind this project. Oksana will facilitate all the technical issues. “
