Born in 1970 in Murino, Leningrad Oblast, Russia, Olga Tobreluts is an accomplished artist who works across multiple disciplines including photography, video, painting and sculpture. Olga is considered to be a pioneer of the digital art movement in Russia and her work is informed by Neo-Academism. Her mastery of technique involves highly defined lines, colors and digital technologies in order to draw attention to the multifaceted nature of simple motifs.
Olga’s work has been exhibited at prestigious institutions such as the Tate Modern in London, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Museum of Modern Art in Moscow, the Ostende Museum in Belgium, the Modern Art Museum in Stockholm, and many others. Additionally, MoMA, NY, the Mario Testino Foundation, the State Russian Museum, the Ludwig Museum, the Baron von Stieglitz Museum and the Wolfgang Joop Foundation have acquired her work. Two comprehensive books have been written about her work and have been featured in numerous publications including: Art Actuel, Flash Art, ArtReview, METROPOLISM, ART, and FOCUS, W Magazine, Vanity Fair, Vogue Paris, Vogue Russia, and Vogue Germany and V Magazine.
