Diving instructor and professional underwater painter Olga Belka captures amazing scenes below the sea level. After diving to the bottom of the sea with paints, brushes and canvas in tow, belka sets up shop, staying there for up to six hours at a time. She carefully studies and captures the surrounding scenes. She sometimes adds her own imagination to her works later on.

“I wanted to capture the underwater beauty and share my impressions with other people”, she explains to Designboom. “Being an artist is not a profession, it is a mission. I want to share my vision of the underwater kingdom with the world. That is why I do paintings underwater. For me, the sea is a boundless resource of inspiration and energy.”

She uses only specific paint types and canvases that are environmentally friendly.
