Olga Chernysheva was born in Moscow, Russia, 1962. She holds a BA from the Moscow Cinema Academy, Moscow and an MA from the Rijksakademie Van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam. Chernysheva lives and works in Moscow. Her often unwitting subjects are observed negotiating a society in turbulence, where the sense of a common future is rapidly dissolving. Her films, photographs, paintings, drawings and object-based works lyrically investigate the fabric of individuality and self-sufficiency, and meditate upon the role of the artist in a time of flux. Chernysheva has a vital interest in the relations between object and figure, in particular in the ways that people and the spaces they inhabit seem often to co-exist uneasily. Her backgrounds with their fluctuating tonalities and psychological charge vie with her subjects for center stage.

Chernysheva is represented by Foxy Production in New York (http://www.foxyproduction.com/) and Diehl, Berlin (http://www.galerievolkerdiehl.com/)
