by Olga Klimova
Olga Klimova started creating art as a result of deep and mystical experiences followed by a practice of Vipassana meditation. The memory of the blissful state of being able to connect to a deeper level of consciousness created the urge to share this experience with the world. Many forms of visual expression were chosen to manifest the vision. Having gotten a strong Russian classical art school background years ago, Olga first created WizArt Visions, a scenography design and production studio which has developed numerous backdrops, fabric installations, U.V. paintings and stage settings for the transformational festival scene. During the 2012 Visions in the Mischtechnik Seminar in Italy, Olga studied egg tempera and oil glazing with visionary masters Laurence Caruana, Amanda Sage and Maura Holden. Through the deepening of her meditative practice and this completely new approach to sacred painting, she was able to discover the whole new dimension in expressing her vision. Her artwork became more spontaneous, intuitive and alive. Today, Olga exhibits her art internationally while teaching painting and maintaining her WizArt Visions design studio. Lucid dreams, channeled visions and deep meditation continue to inspire her work, which seeks to evoke the shared feeling of our deep interconnectedness. “…Putting the mind aside and trusting the flow of creation, listening to the painting and one’s own subconscious, not trying to control what’s happening and letting go – all are very useful skills not only during painting,” she says, “but in life.”
I like this. It’s rather cool and very deep.
