In this discordant age of technology, noise, and impatience, Olga Kleytman’s work intends to slow down the viewer, allowing them to reflect on life’s simple moments – ordinary things that fill in our days, places where we feel at home, habitual routines that give us a sense of security. Those are the moments when people allow their thoughts to drift away and reveal their true selves. That’s when a subject’s genuine emotions can be read through body language – interlaced fingers, relaxed posture, tensed shoulders, or even a simple turn of the head. She wants these moments to last on canvas, as if the world stopped for a minute to let us see life as is.

Olga Kleytman is a contemporary artist who lives and works in San Francisco, CA.

Her gently placed brushstrokes convey the emotions of the subject and the mood of the moment perpetually caught on canvas.

Her work can be found in private collections in the United States, Russia, and Ukraine.
