My name is Olga Griesinger and you are viewing my portfolio. My work uses illustrations as part of visual language. I was Born in the USSR, and after its fall I grew up in Belarus, a small Eastern European country above Ukraine. My strength as an artist comes from the fact that I have had a strong grounding in classical academic drawing and painting since I started art school at age seven. However, I did not want to become a fine artist; influenced by the boldness and richness of Polish mid-century posters. I wanted to join the world of graphic design. Today I am a designer who, in addition to having layout, typography, and photography skills, is able to create strong illustrations in almost any style or technique.
