Olya Bezhina is a prize-winning Russian painter. She frequently works en plein air, rethinking natural colours and capturing the optical effect of light and wind blowing. For her, the open air acts as a creative laboratory, where the search for the most advanced pictorial approaches is carried out and new solutions discovered. Her resulting paintings are full of rhythm, bold colours and a balance of strength and silence that directly reflects the majestic landscapes of the Taman Peninsula.
