Olga Rybalko is a representational painter who captures the urban and natural landscape with a unique attention to the magic of each place. She combines her artistic passion with her love of travel to create scenery that captures the mind and the heart.
At the age of thirteen, Olga’s family moved to Vancouver from Ukraine. Immigrating to Canada would prove to be one of the most important experiences of her life. “It helped shape my character and my art. Being thrown into such a multicultural country opened so many possibilities for travel and learning. Most of all, it meant that I could make my dream of being an artist a reality.” Olga has earned a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Art and Art History at the University of British Columbia.
“My art is all about capturing a place –not the exact look of it, but how it feels to be there. When I paint, I feel like I am there, and that is what I want to translate to the viewer.”
Olga lives and works in Vancouver BC.
