PopImpressKA is a new form of 21st century art, created by artist Olga Papkovitch, DOOSJ. Based in New York City, Papkovitch is recognized as a rising Russian-American focused on the art of Impressionism. She has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Her work has been featured in many private and public collections. She is also a humanitarian involved in various charities such as Locks of Love, supporting children with cancer, World Cares Center for helping Haiti, The Gabriela Mistral Foundation to help people after the Chilean Earthquake disaster, The 8th Annual PAWS Chicago Charity Fundraiser to benefit animals. Her painting Sunflower Ripe Tomatoes benefited the fundraiser of Marsden Cancer hospital in London, which is one of the most highly praised charities of the late Princess Diana. She sold one of her paintings during a live auction to benefit and support the “Cause to End Human Trafficking”
arranged by the Barnaba Institute.
PopImpressKA stands for Popular Impressive Kaleidoscope. It represents a combination of three words: Pop for images that appear three-dimensional, impressionism for her favorite art form, and the word Popka which translates into parrot in Russian for its vibrant and deep colors.
The majority of Papkovitch’s paintings portray nature, ethic cultures, animals, and landscapes as a remembrance of our responsibility to save our green planet. She creates unique canvas quilts from her PopImpressKA paintings, giving her quilts a glamorous look.
Her fascination with the American quilt tradition puts this movement to a whole new level of understanding;
bringing it forward to our 21st century with a fresh new look through her art and creativity. Her unique creation attracts various label designers and brand carriers “People are always looking for something new and I like for them to have something different and unique to talk about. Something they have never seen before; a collaboration of art and design,” Papkovitch wants the world to know. “It is our responsibility to support each other in order to see our society grow into a humane and kind environment.”
