Olga Afanasiadi is a modern artist. Olga was born in 1988 in Russia.
«I have been seriously engaged in painting for over 10 years, and during this time I have created a huge number of paintings. My paintings are in private collections in Russia, Spain, Greece and America. I also have an active store on the SaatchiArt online gallery.
For over 4 years now, I have been imbibing Spanish-speaking culture and this greatly influences my creative expression.
My art is at the intersection of primitivism, street art and verbal symbols. I myself define my works as a play of visual and verbal symbols, and I use them in order to convey to the viewer the sensations and atmosphere of everyday life, permeated with the culture of Spain and sometimes Latin America.
I consider my other works as reflections on the theme of «metaphysics of being.» They are about how to stop and feel the magic of the moment.
Sometimes I use repeating symbols, but each time they discover a new meaning or complement some new statement.
I like the idea of drawing my inspiration from the streets of Barcelona — this is an amazing city, “la ciudad de las maravillas”; it has a unique energy, creativity, freedom and a lot of what I try to convey in my works.
