Olga Klimova started creating art as a result of mystical experiences followed by a practice of Vipassana meditation. She joined the new wave of visionary artists who emphasize creativity as a catalyst for personal transformation and social change.
Many forms of visual expression were chosen to manifest the vision. With a classical art school background behind her back she had received in Russia, Olga created WizArt Visions, a New York based deco studio which has developed numerous backdrops, fabric installations and stage settings for the festival scene.
In 2012 Olga came to Italy, where she studied with Amanda Sage, Laurence Caruana, Andrew Gonzalez and Maura Holden. Through the deepening of her meditative practice and this new approach to oil painting, she was able to discover the whole new dimension in expressing her vision. Her artwork became more spontaneous, intuitive and vibrant.
Today, Olga travels North America with her installations, exhibits her art internationally, teaches in Europe and USA while maintaining her studio in New York. In 2015 she became one of the instructors of the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art.
Lucid dreams, channeled visions and meditation continue to inspire her work, which seeks to evoke the feeling of our deep interconnectedness. “…Putting the mind aside and trusting the flow of creation, listening to what is unfolding in front of the eyes and one’s own subconscious, not trying to control what’s happening and letting go – all are very useful skills not only during painting,” she says, “but in life.”
