About the Artist:
Olga Esther is a Spanish painter and illustrator. She is a graduate of fine arts from Polytechnic University of Valencia, she is the recipient of two art scholarships in Prague and Mexico. She also holds a master‘s degree in video games. Now, she lives and works in Valencia.
Olga paints princesses who don’t want to be princesses, birds who cry blood, toads who kill themselves because they are ignored. She uses princess symbolism to talk about gender and feminism. She paints the invisible ones, the little-forgotten girls, those little nobodies in this world, but above all, all those who although are still nobody, do not have anyone.
