Olga Szczechowska

Olga Szczechowska (born 1987, Radom, Poland) — graduate of Painting and Cultural Studies at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun (Poland); lives and works in Warsaw.
Olga is mostly engaged in painting and illustration. She likes breaking the rules of proper reflecting of nature with the use of unexpected elements from another universe. Her works are minimalistic in the form, simply elegant and gracefully colorful.

The recent years Olga has devoted to the art of collage. The compositions are inspired by landscapes, still lives, or they come as a result of experiments with shapes, textures, and colours.

She is the author of the cover for the Polish cultural magazine Notes na 6 tygodni (#106 July-August-September 2016), she has published her illustrations in other magazines, like G’rls room, Kukbuk, Contemporary Lynx, Visegrad Insight.
