Olga Gouskova paints women who are always beautiful and always stylish. Although each painting portrays one woman, these aren't portraits of an individual. They don't seem to reflect individual personalities but instead seem to explore the same personality or an idea of the same stylised personality throughout each of her paintings. The artist's obvious love for pattern and flat washes of colour all help to enhance this idea. Olga Gouskova was born in Russia in 1974 and now lives and works in Belgium.
