Vala Ola



     Vala Ola is an artist who passionately and relentlessly seeks to create artworks that shows her dedication to excellence.  Her classical training in Europe is reflected in her art.  Her figurative bronze sculptures are noted for their depth of expression and emotion.  The high quality of her sculpted form has earned her great respect among art appreciators.


     “The bronze gives me an opportunity to mold the sense of life into an everlasting form.  From the force of a muscle in motion to a tender human emotion expressed.  That along with the abstract quality of composition is what inspires me.”


     Vala Ola was born and raised in Iceland.  Vala Ola’s artistic talent was apparent early on, and from the age of thirteen she attended classes drawing models from life.  Graduating from the College of Hamrahlid, she furthered her studies at the Icelandic College of the Arts, and later graduated from The Arts Institute in Bournemouth, England. 


     She won the Icelandic Design Excellence Award for the first time at the age of twenty-six.  During her studies in England, she was a finalist at the Smithsonian Young Illustrator’s Competition.  She went on as her country’s sole representative at the Nordic Graphic & Illustration Awards.


     Moving to the United States in 1994, she changed her focus to portraiture, and found herself booked solid for the next 7 years painting portraits in oil.  After eight years in Santa Fe, she relocated to Scottsdale, AZ.  Vala rekindled her interest in sculpting in 2001 and has won awards from the Allied Artist’s of America, the International Guild of Realism and placed as finalist at the Art Renewal Center.  She is an elected professional member of the prestigious National Sculpture Society.  Once a year she teaches a sculpting workshop at the Scottsdale Artist’s School.


     Her inspiration derives from her observation of life.  Even the most mundane circumstance we find ourselves in daily will spark an idea.  The Flemish artist Vermeer would paint the simple act of pouring milk, elevating it to a moment worth remembering for eternity, in a similar way Vala will look at a moment usually passed by as a moment worth noticing.


     Vala Ola’s work has been exhibited in Reykjavik, London, and throughout the United States.  She has participated in impressive shows including the National Sculpture Society’s annual shows NY, Allied Artists of America Annual Shows NY, Art Renewal Center Salon Exhibit, NY, Peppertree Art Show, CA, International Guild of Realism Annual Shows, and Sculpture in the Park, CO.  She has also been in many Museum shows including The Springfield Museum, MA, Wichita Art Museum, KS, Museum of Texas Tech University, TX, Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, WI, and the Phoenix Art Museum, Az.
