Olea Nova is a visual artist and composer. She was born in Leningrad, Russia and is a graduate of the University of Humanities and Social Sciences in St. Petersburg, Russia and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her body of work encompasses painting, drawing, printmaking, video and sound.
Olea Nova explores the possibilities of the non-objective form as a self-referential performative social object conceptualized and made by the artist. Olea's intent is for each work to have its own actuality, and focus is on the human perception through the interaction of lines, sounds and color, while simultaneously keeping to the improvisational mode of working and leaving the content open for multiple cultural readings.
