Olga Bielma makes drawings and paintings in response to the images she sees in books and magazines. Her work employs an economical line that brings to mind the formal composition used in publications of botanical studies. Olga transforms her particular chosen subject matter (composers, small animals, hairstyles, pharaohs) by often isolating them on the page and infusing each with color or graphic detail that lends a sophisticated, whimsical elegance. Olga has exhibited her work at August, in Oakland, the Outsider Art Fair, New York and has had two nearly sold out shows in the Creative Growth gallery.
Born 1943, Mexicali, Mexico.
