Olga Nikitina is a Russian artist was born in Ukraine and one of the new pioneers in the growing field of underwater painting. Painting always was a big part of my life. But new work opportunities and environments gave me new inspiration – and a new direction for my paining. In 2008 I became a scuba diver. In 2015 I became a scuba dive instructor and moved from Russia to live in Egypt. The Red Sea is a very unique ocean - with its corals and amazing marine life. The empty monotonous desert landscape contrasts sharply with the bright colors and rich underwater life. But it’s not a secret that the marine environment is endangered nowadays, and we, as responsible citizens, need to care for and protect our ocean. Scuba Divers witness the changes happening in the ocean – and can be among the first to raise the awareness of others to these growing problems. Nowadays most scuba divers have underwater cameras, to record the treasures and tragedies happening underwater – in this case evidence of the destruction of marine life. Art too, is a very effective tool and medium to communicate these messages. The main focus of my painting is underwater marine life. Underwater I have learnt not only about the many life-forms, but the shapes and colors of everything in that realm continue to blow my mind. After diving, when at home I work hard to remember what I have just seen underwater – and what I remember is not always exactly what I wish to show - this realization led me to underwater painting – taking a slow exposure photograph right next to my subject. I have been working as a dive instructor in Egypt for the last 3 years. I absolutely fell in love with the Red Sea, with its beautiful and colorful underwater life, spectacular drop-off views and magnificent coral reefs. I love to take underwater pictures but I feel as well that it is not enough to communicate my admiration for the Red Sea. I realize I can do it only through my soul – through my painting. And the best way to feel inspiration it is to be there, to be a part of marine life, to be immersed in the underwater environment. The original pioneer of underwater painting was Andre Laban, the engineer of Cousteau’s team. He was a chemist, so he created a special cover for canvas and he found out what colors are possible to use underwater for painting, and that it is not toxic for the environment. He has been painting underwater for 20 years and his works are now all over the world.
