Russian Prerafaelit Olga Suvorova

Olga Suvorova 

Olga Suvorova was born in 1966 in St. Petersburg (then Leningrad). Shea has created her own style of painting – lifestyle portraits of costumed characters in the interiors of different epochs. Her work is a nostalgia for the St. Petersburg “World of Art” movement with its retrospective and love of the 18th century. Olga graduated from the Academy of Arts of Ilya Repin in 1988. She is based in Saint Petersburg, but her works have been exhibited all over the world, in places like Germany, Italy, China, and the United States.

Olga admire the Italian Renaissance, especially Botticelli. His drawings for Dante’s Divine Comedy inspired her to paint Piero’s Dream. But the biggest influences on her creativity has the Pre-Raphaelites.

I also really like Leon Bakst, especially his sketches of theatrical costumes. Also, I must not forget [Gustav] Klimt. I appreciate his ability to depict the interaction of gold and picturesque images of specific individuals, like in the Portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer. At the same time it is very decorative. For the summer, I am living in the countryside. When I do street paintings, I often turn to Klimt, remembering his ability to illustrate nature and flowers.

Olga Suvorova’s paintings are sold around the world. This suggests that the art in the style of the Pre-Raphaelites is absolutely relevant worldwide in the 21st century.

Brazil’s 1920s Art Deco Magazine “Para Todos”

Art Deco we associate with a particular period in history— jazz-age of the 20s—but also with particular locales: Paris, London, Vienna, New York. We probably do not think of Rio de Janeiro. Europeans know very little about art from “the colonies.” But Brazil had its own modern art movement, one that strove for a distinctly Brazilian sensibility. The movement announced itself in 1922, the centennial of the South American nation’s independence from Portugal.

1922 happened to be the year that a Rio de Janeiro-born artist, illustrator, and graphic designer who went by the name J. Carlos (José Carlos de Brito e Cunha) took over the direction of the magazine Para Todos. Founded in 1918, the magazine began as a film rag, and its covers faithfully featured photo spreads of movie stars. But in 1926, Carlos began drawing his own cover illustrations, and he continued to do so for the next four years, as well as drawing thousands of cartoons and writing vaudeville plays and samba lyrics.

His work introduces some uniquely Brazilian elements that seem almost proto-psychedelic.

J. Carlos was a prolific artist who “collaborated in design and illustration in all the major publications of Brazil from the 1920s until the 1950s.” In all, it’s estimated that he left behind over 100,000 illustrations.

Alexandra Exter’s innOvations in the art of costume  

By Melnyk Myroslav Tarasovich,
assistant Professor, Ph. D.,
Kiev Institute of decorative arts and design named after Mychailo Boychuk

The majority of researchers called Alexander Exter the founder of Ukrainian Cubo-futurism: its logic, colours, emotion developed European cubism and futurism on Ukrainian national basis.
In Ukraine, Alexandra Exter traveled from village to village, collecting samples of folk art. On the basis of this material he made designs for fabrics, garments, shawls and scarves. The influence of Ukrainian art in her works is felt not at the level of interpretations, but at the level of attitude.


Exter’s experiments in the field of theatrical costume and body art were innovative: with the geometrization of forms, colors, the effects of the dynamics and emphasis on the frame elements she created the quintessential images of the characters.

Exter also created fashionable suits, taking an active part in the work of the Moscow “Atelier”. She participated in exhibitions and competitions, publishing her sketches and articles in magazines – doing her own variant of the most fashionable in the 1920s “Art Deco” style. With her extravagant combined colors, materials, details, Exter often ahead of its time.


At the beginning of XXI century V. Exter reconstructed in Lilia Pustovit collection of apparel and accessories “Aelita” (2008). Her works inspire many young designers and her main principle – “more creativity and less provincialism” is relevant not only for modeling of the costume, but for the entire Ukrainian contemporary art.
