Olga Megele is an Australian Artist based in Melbourne, Victoria.
The story of Olga’s art started when she started painting again after a long absence. Her work was not how she wanted it to be. It was stilted, stayed and lacking in life. There was no joy because she felt tentative and scared.
Olga had to learn to be playful, to be no longer afraid of ‘mucking up’ the canvas. Now she calls herself an artist. She lets her art direct her, she has given it permission to lead her.
The Australian landscape and the ocean is Olga’s intuitive favourite subject matter. She also enjoys abstract art and portraiture. She likes the challenge of it and the chance to depict beyond the obvious.
To keep the skills up Olga also enjoys creating still life.
Teaching primary art part time is also a delight for Olga, and she hopes to be an inspiration for her many talented students to pursue their creative dreams, and to see that the Arts are a viable career.
Olga was filmed for Colour In Your Life in February 2022.
