Olga Shcheblykina's Education and Practice
Born in 1986, Olga studied at the British Higher School of Art and Design in Moscow and Hertfordshire University, UK. She is currently pursuing further education at Kunst University in Linz, Austria. Using art as a form of self-expression, Olga pays special attention to maintaining spontaneity in her practice. On top of her signature dark background, which creates depth and shadow in her expressionist works, the artist roughly and intuitively layers colour and texture to create a sense of motion. Fleshy, biomorphic shapes morph and seep out of the canvas; oil paints embodying the release of suppressed emotions.
Throughout 2021, Olga participated in group exhibitions in art spaces in Moscow, Russia, such as K35 Space, Contemporary Art International Festival, and White Room. She also exhibited at 23 Gallery, Athens, Greece, and The Holy Art Gallery, London, UK. In 2015, Olga worked with Tobias Zielony at Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts.
