Olga Suchanova is a Slovakian emerging visual artist and curator, living and working in London. Olga's studio is based at the Thames Side Studios, where she is also the keyholder of the Thames Side Print Studio. Through her journeys, she is inspired by the nature, properties of matter and energy; and quantum mysticism, which are translated into light, colour, pattern and form with the use of experimental photography, printmaking, and painting. In her work, she is questioning the concept of space, time, illusion and reality.
