Oleg Kedria
Curator Review 
Starry Rhino
”This glamorous sculpture embellished in beautiful crystals, absolutely shimmers with vitality and strength. The bold posture of the rhinoceros brings an equity to the playfulness of the varying stars and the lower reflective surface harmonizes the weight of the form. Kedria’s innovative composition and adornment is quite inspired and his bold and spirited design excites the eye’. - E.E.Jacks
His most significant works demonstrate his profound knowledge of animals and their impressive forms in motion.
