OlGA LOMAKA

Russian artist, based in London 

Olga Lomaka

Olga Lomaka (b.1982, Krasnodar) is a Russian contemporary artist and curator. Her style is known for working primarily within the pop-art movement, combining diverse materials and techniques in her pieces. Lomaka exhibits her artwork worldwide, actively participating in global art-fairs and biennales. 

Her remarkable personal style is instantly recognizable, placing the viewer between the concrete and the abstract, the familiar and the unknown. Viewed through the prism of pop-art, the artist’s primary features include playing with recognizable images and products of consumerism and pooling together contrasting beliefs; this gives a second symbolic meaning to the images she produces. The artist is constantly experimenting with new techniques, carving, and aerography, mixing traditional materials and modern media in her creative process. 

Her artwork transcends the realm of painting, including a prominent series of installations and sculptures. Lomaka’s eye for the unordinary in everyday life allows her to truly reveal spiritual and social themes and concerns; threads of what we consider reality, along with hidden dimensions of consciousness and possibility, weave their way through. Lomaka’s works can be found in Erarta Museum (St. Petersburg), Pierre Cardin Foundation (Lacoste), Contemporary Art Center “M17” (Kiev), Fine Art Foundation (London), Loyola University Foundation (Chicago), 25 Kadr Gallery Foundation (Moscow) as well as in private collections. She can be spotted showcasing her work annually in Basel Miami, Venice Biennale and The Royal Academy. The artist won the Best Contemporary Artist of the Year in 2017 (an award presented by Phillips Auction House in London) and is the winner of numerous art competitions and internationally-recognized awards. More recently, her series titled ‘Pink Magic’ was included in Grayson Perry-curated Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, featuring in The Sunday Times and The Guardian.
