Born in the mid-sixties, Olga and Aleksey (a.k.a. O&A) are now blooming mid-career artists and an extremely sought after team of artists. The two received their academical art education in Moscow, Russia–and have collaborated ever since. During their years in school, they focused their studies on classical drawing, live model painting, human anatomy, and art history.
Upon graduation, the artists explored the world of Russian Iconography and European Renaissance for several years. As part of this exploration, they created a number of restorations, learned the secret technologies of egg tempera painting, and created gesso, gilding, and other coveted methods of the ancient masters.
The husband and wife team immigrated to the United States in 2002. Today, they live and work together in their artist studio in Evergreen, CO.
In their current fine art work, O&A are successfully blending yesterday’s old masters of iconography and Renaissance techniques, with today’s contemporary art language.
Many of O&A’s fine art pieces are hanging in private collections across the U.S. and around the world. (e.g. England, Italy, Denmark, and Russia) In addition, selected images of their art work have appeared in American Art Collector, South West Art, and Fine Art Connoisseur.
