Olga aban­doned IT stud­ies to fol­low her dream of be­com­ing an artist, and has since free­lanced for a host of pri­vate clients. She’s worked on table­top games and matte paint­ings to cre­at­ing 3D imagery as an in-house em­ployee for a video game devel­op­ment com­pany.

“I favour sim­plis­tic de­signs over com­pli­cated ones,” Olga says. “Logic and func­tion­al­ity over style. I like the older ver­sions of Pho­to­shop and the colour green.”

The Moscow-based artist is con­tin­u­ously hon­ing her craft, pay­ing par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion to oil paint­ing and sto­ry­telling, while tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from the works and mem­oirs of the old Rus­sian mas­ters.

1 Red Hood “This was turned into promo art and a poster for a free­lance project I’ve been work­ing on. It’s a post-apoc­a­lyp­tic twist on Red Rid­ing Hood tale in form of a ca­sual hid­den-ob­ject game.”

2 Edge Ch ar­ac­ters “A fel­low table­top games fan com­mis­sioned this piece, which is based on a rather loose de­scrip­tion of both the char­ac­ters and the scene. I learned a great deal from the old mas­ters’ fig­u­ra­tive pieces while work­ing on this one.”

3 De­scen­dant of Drag­ons Char­ac­ter “This is art for a com­mu­nity ac­tiv­ity I was par­tic­i­pat­ing in at the time. The con­test win­ner asked to por­tray their char­ac­ter, which I did. Work­ing for a spe­cific cause mo­ti­vates me to cre­ate bet­ter art.”
