Ola Abdallah was born in Aleppo (Syria) in 1978, she spent her childhood in Paris and then moved back to Syria where she began in 1996 her artistic studies in the Fine Arts Faculty of Damascus completed in 2000.
In 1998 she visited and worked in the ateliers of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts of Paris.
Finishing her studies in Syria, she moved back to Paris in 2001 and went to the Arts Plastiques department of the University of Paris 8 where she studied theory of art and earned a PhD on her thesis about the French artist Aurélie Nemours in 2008.
Ola Abdallah carries on her painting work in parallel to her theoretical study; her work is a continuity of her Syrian beginnings. It is the Syrian light seen as landscape that helped her realize her desire of becoming a painter but also the observation of the meticulous and beautiful work of craftsmen.
In Europe, the museums, the shows and the meetings with other artists coming from all around the world broaden her horizon. Proposing now an abstract painting style focused on color and space, Ola Abdallah lives and works in Paris.
