Olga Polichcthouk was born in St. Petersburg, Russia.
I moved to Italy in 1991 and gave my first exhibition in the heart of Milan, at 5, Via della Signora. I worked with Delta 2 architecture Studio for many years, making paintings for Samarani restaurant and the Milan Fair
''...As far as my artistic viewpoint is concerned, I believe I am coherent in my desire to carry on the Russian pictorial tradition, which roots go back to ancient Russia, to the spirituality of Icons and, indeed, to Russian Avant-Garde of the beginning of the 20th Century. My desire is to be a national reference point within a multicultural mosaic...
I wish to create an alternative world populated by fantastic objects and by characters which represent the celestial hierarchy: the wise birds of heaven or strangely attuned angels - all this is an outlet for the imagination. Actually there is an answer or more than answer to every riddle. I often write nursery rhymes or poetry on my canvases. In my work I try to bring out the reality of things. My pictures may be understood without reference to positioning.
Colors are like pieces of the rainbow to compose a whole or break up this whole, unleashing a storm of colors and then return to a state calm, silence, harmony.
The picture begins to live out its own life, being energized by me however. I attempt to be a good creator - I paint my characters and nature with loving care. Even Gorgon Medusa should appear, she will be good and kind-hearted in my work.''
graduated at the State Academy of Art&Design at the faculty of Industrial Art in Saint Petersburg in 1986. That same year I started working as a designer in a big, important company, designing prototypes of automatic systems and different types of objects from both the aesthetic and ergonomic aspects. Since then I have taken part in many an exhibition of professional visual art exhibitions
