PHILOSOPHY

the way I feel beauty

NOW

behind the sight

Lost in Venice, without knowing anyone, without money, I found my new name -"Ora". 

It has many different meanings in many different languages. I found a name that kips all my origins together.  Everyday I discover new meanings of my name, meeting people and their traditions around this beautiful world. 


I decided to bring this meanings all together in one vessel and plant them. 

Now they are growing trees called "ORASCOPE". Each tree gives its own fruit.

ORASCOPE

is the Map that guides us to observe the treasure within ourselves.

 

ORASCOPE has four main rivers:

Light:  "OR" -  in Hebrew  - אור 

Portrait reveal the Light of the Soul.

Skin: "OR" - in Hebrew עור 

Habitus models the Skin of the Body. 

Pray:  "Orare" - is a verb in Latin

Performance is the Pray of the Spirit.

Time: "Ora" - in Greek ώρα 

Entanglement Fashion is a trip around the world, where the Mind is beyond Time.

Ora offer collaborations and projects based on the artistic philosophy "ORASCOPE".

ORA

“ I am Ora, a being of light. I am visiting this beautiful Earth since 1990.

I come from Russia, where since I was a child I studied theatre, dance, music, clothing and painting. I spent all my childhood painting faces everywhere. I still hear the voices of my parents shouting: "Do not paint on the walls of the house!" :) 

I would like to be able to arrive even if only for a moment to each soul of every person and to be able to whisper:

"If you do not love yourself, who can do it?"

Bringing some light and planting the seed of inner peace within yourselves is my mission.

It is up to you to water that seed to grow.

Traveling anywhere in the world to be able to make a portrait, a dress, a dance or a performance is the way in which

I water mine ."
