Olga Gasparian was born in 1970 in Jekaterinenburg in Russia and became a member of St Petersburg Guild of Master Artists in 1993. At a young age Olga had drawing lessons at the Diaghilev Lyceum. Her teacher thought her so good that she was given the assignment to illustrate the story “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint Exupéry. For a year she made hundreds of drawings in pastel and watercolor. This work also lead to her first exhibition at the age of 14 in the youth theatre of Ekaterinburg.

Olga makes symbolic paintings with themes of myth and love. She addresses the world that is invisible to the eye, but relates to the soul of every person. It is the closed and secret dream of humanity, with memories of a lost paradise that touch our soul and heart.

Using Latin inscriptions, her paintings sing timeless songs: ‘Love conquers all, the harbour of salvation, the end of life but not the end of love, the joy of the soul is spoken, I believe in order to understand, time flies, eternity awaits, life is a brief dream, song of songs is the love of God, surrender to the love of all things.’
