Olga Dmytrenko was born and raised in Ukraine. Her love of the visual arts and science was cultivated at a young age by her father-artist and mother-mathematician. She is a graduate from Kiev State University where she majored in Physics in 1986. In 1990 she gained a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry. She is an acrylic and oil abstract painter and also a research associate at the University of Delaware. Her paintings are often reminiscent of industrial landscapes or musical mindscapes with the organic motif with a significant emotional contribution. Some of her works are devoted to the human rights and fairness issues. In this connection, she has an amazing chance to have her “Red Pharaoh" painting to be permanently hung in SPAZO-TEMPO museum after "Human Rights?"
