Q: Do you believe as artists that we have a responsibility to address environmental issues?
A: Yes, I think that each person is responsible for what is happening around him, both locally and globally. There is a lot of injustice in the world, perhaps these are the rules of this life, but this does not mean that we should not make efforts and try.
Q: How does nature, the elements, and the environment inspire your work?
A: Nature has always inspired me. I do not separate a person and I think that we are also a part of this whole universe. Since childhood, I was fascinated by nature, I felt my merger with the outside world and talked with trees, insects, and birds. Especially in the summer when I was leaving the city. Now I am less and less often away from the bustle of the city, but mentally I am still there, breathing in the fresh morning humid air. more » “Interview with the Artist Olya Volgina”
