Olan Wolf illustrates modern society, analyzing current crises and collapse, looking for solutions by means of art.
His paintings are inspired by dreams. He believes that your dreams show the connection between conscious and unconscious lives. In Olan’s painting this connection is represented by golden needless that penetrate the canvas and form unusual patterns. This is the path by which your thoughts and figures go in order to entering a dream
Artist believes that painting is a language that does not always need verbal support. Indeed, it is “lost in color to be in the light.” This is his recipe for achieving harmony, which Vladimir now proudly offers to others as a new point of view for reflection.
Artist’s book “Contemporary art as a way of life” shows That incredible outpouring has proven that human creativity is perhaps the most resilient in times of crisis. Even as we face unprecedented challenges and fears in this century, the show must, and will, go on.
Amid this overwhelming situation, art can be the one thing that offers us solace and peace.
This time also allows us to view art in a completely new way. As we search for inspiration to lighten our days, the digital world opens up to us, offering moments of serendipity, curiosities, learnings and exchanges that we may not have discovered before. These new circumstances make us think of Kairos, the Ancient Greek concept of time that speaks of an opportune or decisive moment. While we cannot physically attend cultural spaces, we can still seize this moment to find art that will heal us, and in doing so become the curators of our own experience.
To that end, this book is aimed to keep bringing beauty and peace into your lives through initiatives to stay engaged and provide moments of calm, reprieve and also joy. These include digital experiences of our permanent collection and exhibitions, education materials and e-learning tools for families, online access and more.
