Andrey Olenev (b. 1993) — an artist from Nizhny Novgorod, participant of the Muddlehood informal art association and co-founder of the TOLK gallery supporting street artists of Nizhny Novgorod since 2014 He works in different formats and techniques (painting, pyrography, object, installation, artist's book). The artist is famous for his monumental paintings on facades of old houses in the Nizhny Novgorod historical centre, and for complex wooden objects, entirely or partially covering paintings and offering tactile interaction. Each work of Olenev is a game with a viewer's perception, in which excess visuality and masterful detailing of surrealistic themes depicted by the artist are found side by side with crossed out and unreadable texts, artificially created obstacles (doors, judas holes, mirrors) and numerous references to the art of the Middle Ages and the Northern Renaissance.
