In her artworks Olga Florenskaya is mixing aesthetics of hand-made posters and folk amateur painting. An important source of images for the artist has become her own collection of old handmade signboards. It is from this amateur aesthetics that Florenskaya got inspired with bright colours, usage of wide surfaces, simple figures, ornaments, adding fonts to the images, local folklore and folksy humour.

Each figure is inscribed at the underneath with tidy circular letters.
