Oleksandr Sayenko (1899-1985) belongs to the brilliant galaxy of Ukrainian artists, whose selfless labour in the sphere of creation of the nationally styled synthetic monumental art in the 1920-30-ies presented a significant phenomenon not only in the national art, but also in the world culture.

Nina Sayenko is well-known in Ukraine and abroad owing to her art works made in hand weaving, straw mosaic and print techniques. Her works are represented at state museum collections, galleries, private collections in Ukraine and in many countries of the world.

Lesia Maydanets-Sayenko's creative work is marked by an original philosophical view, a deep fathoming of folk traditions and personal artistic style. Her works were displayed on many national and foreign exhibitions, and are stored in the museums and private collections.

Oleksandr Sayenko Art Studio for Deaf Children was opened in 2001 and is aimed to teach children to create, maintain the primacy and immediacy of perception, develop their ability to fantasize and improvise, cultivate sense of color, harmony and beauty, nurture individual artistic talent and spiritual culture.

ArtAsters is a non-profit project of Asters aimed at popularization of Ukrainian art. Launched in 2009, the project is designed to benefit Ukrainian artists and create additional opportunities for them to display their works in a gallery-like space where Asters' lawyers, clients, and guests can admire their work. The current exposition of Sayenkos' art works and silent auction was co-organized by USUBC and Asters.
