Olga Brown was born in Ukraine and received a MA in art and textiles. Since 1997 she has worked and lived in London, winning the Chelsea Art Society Agnes Reeve Award (2009) best painting of London. First prize for the best figurative painting in Hesketh Hubbart Art Society, Mall Gallery (2012). Olga exhibits extensively at galleries in the UK.
Olga’s landscape paintings are impressionistic and colourful, her cityscapes embracing all the noise and chaos of modern life. Using London’s ubiquitous and iconic transportation, Olga adds flashes of black and red to her scenes, which are always full of people and never content to depict architecture alone. Using thick brushstrokes and rich colour manipulation, her paintings of London capture the vivacity of Britain’s capital city in all its guises.
Her recent figurative work introduces a new theme in her art, exploring ideas of escapism and beauty through elegance and movement. Inspired by both the Old Masters and modern photography, her enigmatic subjects are immersed in the contemplative world of their dreams and desires, caught as if in snapshot in a single atmospheric momen
