My Bio

Hello Everyone.

My name is Olga Severina. I am a Ukrainian born exhibition curator and a graphic designer residing in Los Angeles, CA.

One of my great passions is the art of a contemporary poster because I believe that a truly compelling poster has the power to change the world. 

I fell in love with the contemporary poster after I obtained my Ph.D. in Visual Arts and I became involved with some of the leading poster and design competitions that encourage creative expression and environmental sustainability. The projects that impacted me the most were an International Eco-Poster Exhibition The 4th Block (Ukraine) and an International Graphic Design Biennale Golden Bee (Russia). Currently, I work for both poster exhibitions as the traveling exhibit curator in the United States.

I am a passionate promoter of the contemporary poster. That is why I founded PosterTerritory initiative – a take-off platform for graphic design campaigns and poster shows in the US and abroad. 

Here are a few of my latest projects


I take a part of a jury in different International Poster Competitions worldwide 


As a true disciple of the genre, I frequently take part in poster competitions and design expos that celebrate creative excellence in contemporary graphic arts.
