Born in Ukraine, Olga Ibadullayeva’s first foray into art was when her mother enrolled her on an art school at four years old, having recognised Olga’s interest in drawing. Since then, her life, work and education have continuously intertwined with art in multiple instances.
After graduating from the Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Arts with a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design, Olga went on multiple art exploratory tours across museums in Europe, the US, and Asia. She engaged in commercial design and digital graphics work before relocating to Singapore to study oil painting at the LASALLE College of the Arts and switching to a career in fine arts.
Holding rich knowledge of art, Olga is unafraid to try various styles and is always open to modern and conceptual skills. Gaining inspiration from her travels and the simple moments in her daily life, she recreates them on her canvas to remember the things she finds unique. Through her pieces, Olga aims to remind viewers to take a break from the daily rush and reflect on the remarkable events surrounding them as she believes there are no ordinary moments in life due to its dynamic nature. Having experimented with different media, Olga primarily uses oil and watercolour in her artworks today.
Olga has held a personal exhibition named “SCENTS of NATURE” and participated in numerous group exhibitions in Singapore.
