Biography

Olga Sokolova born in 1963, Moscow. In 1988 Olga Sokolova graduated from the Moscow Stroganov Art Institute. All those years she kept painting folk (lubok) pictures. Sokolova's Lubok pictures continue the tradition of Russian lubok of the 12th - 17th centuries, which had further developed on its own in the 18th-19th centuries emphasizing painting technique rather than the original wooden prints. Having evolved from old icon-style painting and book miniatures, Lubok was especially popular in the North of Russia and in the Moscow area. The themes of her work include various folk customs, incantation, legends, fairy tales, religions rites and genre scenes. Sokolova's works are represented in the collections of the Ambassador Gallery, USA; State Russian Museum; Publishing Company, USA; Berman Gallery, USA, Modern Art Gallery, the Netherland; Modern Art Gallery, Great Britain, etc.
Her work can be found in many private collections in Russia, United States, Belgium, Spain, etc. In 1990 Sokolova's works were sold at the Phillips' auction in London.
