Olga Pankova is a Russian artist currently living in Toronto, Canada. Painting is her passion.
Her portrait paintings go far beyond merely capturing a faithful likeness. Her physical process of applying paint with a brush creates a unique dynamic energy, impossible to replicate through any mechanical process. Capturing detail is a cornerstone of Olga’s style.
Occasionally deviating from her traditional style, Olga continues to use a number of new mediums and applications to express her whimsical dreams.

Critics Review – “Outreach”
“There’s nothing like experiencing art in person. Olga’s painting is no exception. Her rich textures and sumptuous colours are really activated by first-hand experience.
Her powerful symbols will stay with you… her images resonate with you.”
Olexander Wlasenko, Curator, Station Gallery, Whitby, Ontario – March 22, 2013
“Thanks to all of you that hire me and allow me the privilege of letting me
use your skin as my canvas.” – Olga
