"Olga Marie Polunin is a Singaporean artist living in Belgium. She is of Russian-English and Hakka Chinese descent. Her paternal grand-parents were respected artists of the 20th century. Her early education was in the Sciences in Singapore. After a year as an undergraduate at the National University of Singapore, she decided to pursue Art. She explores her Asian roots through the image of the feminine form. She paints in oil and gouache. Chinese influences are evident in her series of nudes.
Following the birth of her children, she depicted the sacred and playful bond between mother and child. She is self-taught, and she is inspired by the religious works of the 15th century of both Europe and Asia. Her paintings have a poetic simplicity as they deal with personal yet universal themes.
Her first exhibition was held in Brussels in October 1997, and her second was held at the Professor Arthur Lim gallery in Singapore in February 1999. Her works are in private collections in Singapore, Indonesia, Brussels, Paris and Los Angeles. She participated in the Images of Women VII show in Hong Kong in 2001. Her works constitute the paintings of Professor Arthur Lim's benediction to the National University of Singapore Museums."
