Hello! Allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Olga Abramova. I’m best known as a graphic artist. My preference is to work in dry pastels but I also use whatever comes to hand, from coal to acrylic. I prefer to search out something new in art, and every year I find something different that captures my imagination.
Recently, I have been especially interested in working on atmospheric pictures, where light and color play on each other, creating a new reality. In all my artistic works, I try to conceal form in the atmosphere, but it doesn’t always work out this way, particularly when the form itself is sufficient.
I graduated from the Moscow State University of Art and Industry, specializing in textile design, and the Moscow State Open Pedagogical University in the faculty of graphic design. In parallel with my studies, I taught pastel drawing.
In 1998, I began exhibiting my works.
In 2001, I was admitted into the International Art Foundation.
I have created a number of original drawing courses for people looking to sketch out their projects or who simply want to learn to paint.
From 2011 until 2014, I taught at the Flowers in Detail school
From 2008 until the present day, I have been a tutor at the Details interior design school, where I teach drawing for landscape designers.
Most of my time is spent in the studio, painting and writing about the life of an artist. I publish all the interesting bits via social networks or in my blog.
Art comes down to two things: exploring the theme and painting.
