ABOUT








Olga is an artist from Sydney, Australia. She began to draw and paint when she was a child. Later, she worked in science and sales & marketing but never stopped being interested in art. When she picked up her brushes again, Olga felt like she never ceased to paint. She exhibits and sells her works through Art Gallery Kurnell, Australian online art gallery Bluethumb and shows around Sydney.

Olga works in both, abstract and representational styles. Her paintings are influenced by such artists as Klimt and Van Gogh, Gauguin and Peploe, Matisse and Derain, Delaunay and Metzinger, N.Goncharova and Lentulov, Kandinsky and Margaret Preston.

“Most of the art styles, living artists are using today, have been introduced in the late 19th and the early 20th centuries. We are lucky to be able to explore and develop our rich heritage and apply elements of many styles in our works to create something new, original and exiting.”

Her still life artworks, animal portraits and abstracts are painted with bold and vibrant hues enjoyed by Impressionists and Fauvists.

As a self-taught artist her approach is to learn something new every day and keep exploring painting media & techniques. She enjoys painting with acrylics, watercolours and in mix media.

Olga loves Australian birds and flowers. Australiana Series is a big part of her portfolio. Cockatoos, lorikeets and other birds who live on her backyard are basically her visiting pets and part of the family.

Her paintings live happily in homes of her friends and clients in Germany, Singapore, Japan, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, England, the US and many other countries.
