Olga Chernysheva has a background in film animation, video and photography, and observes everyday people in their activities and conversations in her home city of Moscow, Russia, with the attentiveness of a photographer. Recently Chernysheva has turned to recording her urban environment in detailed drawings. She captures scenes with precise charcoal markings, finishing each work by collaging phrases onto the surface. Chernysheva relays her inner thoughts and creativity to the viewer with tenderness and humour.
