Olga Nozdrina

“"My personal purpose is to show the whole universe in simple everyday objects, to give them an extra meaning, and also an additional architectural geometry. William Blake: To see a World in a grain of sand, And a Heaven in a wild flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand, And Eternity in an hour."

Hema Tompouce 20 x 20 cm

Artist Olga Nozdrina was born in Russia and has been drawing since childhood. She graduated in 2011 from Industrial Design University in Moscow obtaining a Master's Degree.

"During my education, I started to work at the interface of design and art. I felt especially enthusiastic about creating unusual objects and architectural shapes. That is why my Industrial Design projects were devoted to inflatable objects for recreation in nature (giant festival tents in bionic shapes)."

After her studies in 2014, Olga found a part-time job in The Netherlands for an advertising company and since then been working in the advertisement sector, Design and creating 3D visualizations.

Fishing Boats Harbor

“I am a watercolor artist from Lahore, Pakistan. Painting flowers has been my childhood passion that recently evolved as my signature style, besides my second favorite collection of 'Rivers and Boats'. I mainly derive my artistic strength from tender flowers because their intense beauty compliments my freedom to use colors on the canvas. My paintings are a syndicated product of nature, perception, and imagination. I am humbled to present my paintings at international platforms including in Italy, Portugal, Albania, Mexico, Bangladesh, UAE and Greece as a Pakistani watercolor artist.”
