About Olga


Olga Gouskova was born in Russia, and raised in Belarus. She studied design at the Byelorussian Academy of Arts in Minsk until 1996, when she emigrated to Belgium.

The subjects of her portraits are mysterious and often melancholic female figures. Gouskova uses various kinds of pens to add detail to her acrylic paintings. These bold lines are intended to convey deep emotions, memories, and ambivalence, she says. ‘My paintings are about feelings and states of mood, about dreams and expectations.’

Her work has been exhibited extensively in Belgium and in the Netherlands.

You have a lovely style but would be interested in more themes and or content other than the female form. It is wonderful work but other subjects would make it even more interesting.

I appreciate the effort, but this work looks flat.

Wow! I really like that first one! I love the way she did the hair,how the woman is gray and the rest is colored, everything. Beautiful and amazing. Really really like it. In the second one, I love how the woman looks "real"; her facial expression isn't too glamourous or fake. Love these!
