Olga Kulagina is a Russian artist based in Moscow.
She started her career as a theatrical set and costume designer in 1976. She created scenography for more than 200 projects in many theatres in Moscow, Kirov, Krasnoyarsk, Omsk, Tallinn, Vologda and many other cities. Olga’s theatrical work had a great influence on her painting. Exploring the philosophy of color, purity of composition and plasticity, she eventually turned to the abstract. Her works are very expressive, as if made out of pure emotion.
Olga’s paintings are exhibited in the Bakhrushin Central Theater Museum, in the State Museum of Theatres for Children in Moscow an in galleries in numerous Russian cities. Her works were also acquired by various galleries and private collectors from Australia, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, USA and France.
She has been awarded the Diploma of Honor of Russian Academy of Fine Arts for a series of personal exhibitions.
