Oleg was born in Russia in 1988, and moved to New Zealand in 1996. He studied at the Elam School of Fine Art, where he got his Masters in 2011. A group show at the RM Gallery in Auckland in 2013 was the first time that Oleg exhibited work in metal. A purchase of two works by Oleg’s university tutor Peter Robinson was what sparked interest in Olivia who saw them at Peter’s house. This lead to Oleg being included in a group show at the Peter McLeavey Gallery in 2014.
Oleg lives in Auckland and works from his K Road studio.
