Olga Pärn

Biography

Olga Pärn (1976) is an animator, film director, and illustrator. She graduated in graphic arts from the Belarusian State Academy of Arts and completed a course in film direction at the La Poudriere animation school in Valence, France. Currently, she works as a visiting professor at the Estonian Academy of Arts. Pärn’s style is sometimes fun, other times somewhat sarcastic and edging towards dark humour, but always warm and witty. Her illustrations provide food for thought.
