Olga Domanova

Olga Domanova

Olga Domanova was born in Mogilev (Belarus) on Dec. 24th, 1958. She started her studies at the Art Academy in Minsk in 1979. In 1980 the encounter with paintings by Salvador Dali left a deep and lifelong impression which influenced her future life.

From 1981 onwards Domanova regularly took part in different exhibitions in her own country and abroad. Her first personal exhibition was organised in Minsk (Belarus). From 1985 til 1991 Domanova worked fruitfully in the field of graphic arts and posters, for which she received the First Price in Sofia (Bulgaria) in 1988 and the Special Price in Warsaw (Poland) in 1989.

She was awarded with the Diplomas of the Union of Artists in 1986 and 1987.

In 1988 she became member of the Belarusian Union of Artists.

From 1994 Domanova visited Germany several times. She stayed in Bobenheim-Roxheim (Mannheim); in Ueberlingen (Lake of Constance) and in Freiburg (Black Forest). She was inspired at this time by the charisma of the wildly romantic and beautiful landscapes. Also, she grasped the works of van Gogh anew – a revelation which at the same time gave her great confidence in her own style of painting.

Beginning in 1996 she started a series of paintings no longer bearing any influence of other Artists or of past styles.

Now the state of soul and the light have become the essential theme and subject of her paintings.
