About

Olga Drak

the Artist

 

I come from Poland, where I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan (1997- 2002), obtaining a Master degree in Art Education (2001) and a Master degree in Painting (2002).

 

I started my painting career with regular oil-on-canvas works. Soon I discovered that big size canvas suit me the most, which led me to bigger and bigger canvas dimensions, and later to creating great scale painting installations.

 

Now I am based in the sub-tropical portuguese island of Madeira, where I have found an endless source of inspiration for my life and art.

 

It was here in Madeira, where I discovered mural painting, and I immediately got involved in creating street art. In the last 3 years I have created more than 30 murals all around the island, and I hope to create some more in the near future.

 

I continue to paint on canvas as well. My works find their home in many private collections all over Europe.
