Olga Kushnir
Olga Kushnir was born and lived in Russia in Siberia, where her ancestors were banished by the Soviet regime. In 2000, she immigrated to Israel with her daughter. Now she lives in Kibbutz Misgav Am in the Upper Galilee. Olga graduated from the Art Institute in Moscow, where she received a certificate for teaching drawing. In art, she has been experimenting with different techniques of painting. Lately she has been painting mainly with a knife on palette. This is a relatively new technique that allows expressing a particular style of the artist. The picture is painted “live”, and there is almost no opportunity to fix or erase anything. Her favorite themes are breathtaking views of Galilee, where she lives, so Olga can paint “live”, just standing by the window. In addition, Olga organized Palette Knife Art studio in Kiryat Shmona, where she teaches drawing. Since 2004 Olga has organized some exhibitions in different cities of Israel, which showed my paintings, the work of my students, as well as the work of other artists. 2013: Group Exhibition at Diamond Exchange in Ramat Gan. 2013: Personal exhibition at "Gabriel House at the Sea of Galilee" 2012: Personal exhibition at the "Leonardo" hotel in Tel Aviv. 2011: Group exhibition at the Museum "Madatech" in Haifa. 2010: Group exhibition at the gallery of "Maale ha-Hamisha" hotel, Jerusalem. 2010: Group exhibition at the "House of Art Collection", Tel Aviv. 2009: Group exhibition at "Yigal Allon House", Tzfat. 2009: Personal exhibition in the hotel "Mitzpe haYamim" (“Seas Observatory”). 2008: “The Yellow Star” group exhibition at the "Yigal Allon House", Tzfat. 2008: Personal exhibition at "Beit Gvulot", Metula. 2007: Personal exhibition in "Teva" hotel, HaGoshrim. 2004: Personal exhibition at Hod Hasharon. 2003: Group exhibition at the Museum of Tel-Hai courtyard.
