Olga Kovtun

"Art, for me, is life. An inner, deeply intimate space. Without borders between the inner and external world. No entrance, neither exit. Everything exists only a single moment on paper. This is a great symphony; going towards the inconceivable surprise. An interesting, enjoyable game.”
