"Olga Suvorova was born in St Petersburg in 1966 and studied monumental composition at the famous Repin Institute of Fine Arts in St Petersburg. She has been influenced by her parents, Igor and Natalya, both highly praised artists in St Petersburg. Other influences include Gustav Klimt, Piero della Francesca, and traditional Russian icons. Olga's talent was rewarded with a unique exhibition in the Institute in the spring of 1990; in 1993 she was awarded first prize for her year. Her paintings of the players in "Comedia de arte" have a haunting quality that sets her apart from the many young talented artists emerging from the Institute. Recently she has produced a series of magnificently detailed screens which have been widely praised and collected. She also paints portraits and landscapes. Olga has exhibited in Italy, Germany, Sweden, Finland, France, Britain, Ireland, China, and the USA where her work is in many collections."
