Olga Anacka was born in Poland where she studied visual arts specialising in painting, graphic, sculpture, and art teaching. She graduated from University of the Arts in Poznan in 2004 and later was shortlisted in Olsztyn Art Biennial 2005, Celeste Prize 2011 and 2012, not exhibiting much after due to personal situation. Since 2006 Olga lives in Ireland.
In her work, Olga expresses feelings and thoughts about experiencing the real. The perception is limited by the intellectual associations built upon societal codes and values. Thus, she calls her painting style an abstract symbolism which is rooted in nature and Slavic heritage. She uses stencils and screen-printing techniques which allows her freely manipulate shape references when designing the scene. In doing so, she explores the options and creates metaphysical worlds.
