“ABOVE THE CLOUDS
The artist will present a new serie of canvas and collaborations, and will be present during the opening night. See you there !
Oli-B is a painter, illustrator and street artist from Brussels, Belgium.
His work ranges across a huge array of media: acrylic, spray paint as well as screen printing techniques on a wide variety of surfaces, including paper, canvas, wood, walls or even stickers. Oli-B’s flow operates on various fronts.
Visually, it is fluidity that predominates: gentle curves; abstract forms that both hint at, and escape from, the figurative; colours that are emphatic but balance each other; and a composition that binds everything togethert From his graffiti teenage period he kept what he loved – forms and colours – and started to flirt more with contemporary art. The letters developed in the direction of characters, the characters towards forms.
Oli-B loves the hustle and bustle of big cities and their crowds and uses the streets as a playground. He also makes his art living by integrating it in the urban jungle through collage. His posters and canvas are all hand-painted unique pieces.”
