Artist Name

Ivana Olbricht

Born: 1978

Hometown: Zilina

Based in: Lysica

An established internationally collected abstract artist born in 1978 in Slovakia. Ivana Olbricht is well known mainly for her statement and bold artworks. Her unique technique is applied in various subjects and styles from the abstract landscape, vivid and colorful expressionism to clean minimalism. Thanks to layering and spontaneous color blending her paintings are full of details, texture, and movement. Not only her paintings give a viewer the visual experience but they bring along a message and positive emotions.

Ivana Olbricht graduated from analytical chemistry, but she exchanged the lab for a studio. She sees the world as a spectrum of colors, breaks the reality into the pieces, she looks under the surface, she highlights the important fragments and brings them to the surface. Proudly self-taught with years of practice she developed her own unique technique with recognizable signature.

She doesn't believe in mistakes and doesn't plan the outcome of the artwork. Many years of experience have taught her to listens to her intuition. She stops painting once she feels satisfied with the piece. Her work on canvas is innovative and experimental. Ivana observes life and situations from ‘’a distance’’ and adopts it into her works.

She is inspired by her travel experience around the globe, meeting different cultures, by nature, quiet seashores, children's laughter, lights of the cities, the sweetness of candies – simply by everything. Her motto is: ‘’Even the saddest emotion and hardest life experience can be painted positively.''
