More of an Illustrator at the beginning of his artistic career, Olivier Desvaux defines himself today as a painter. Morocco is what inspired him the first time and it is because of this trip that he began to translate ambiences and colors on canvas by soaking up the atmosphere of a landscape - like a true modern-day impressionist.

From illustration to painting

Born on May 12, 1982, Olivier Desvaux studied in Paris at the Estienne school, in the field of Applied Arts, and then went on to study at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs from which he graduated in 2006. 

Initially an illustrator, it was during a trip to Morocco in 2009 that he decided to devote himself more to nature and life scenes. On this specific occasion, he was asked to make oil paintings on commission from Jacques Garcia to decorate the Suite Baldaquin of the Mamounia in Marrakech. 

In 2011, he is selected to put forward painted decor designs for the apse, the nave and the arcades of the church of Sainte Marie Majeure (classified as a historical monument) in Bonifacio.

An impressionist legacy serving contemporary subjects

Olivier Desvaux describes himself as more of a contemplative kind of person. He appropriates the landscapes that are fascinating to him in order to translate the atmosphere through the use of tones and colors. Moved by impressionists such as Ingres, he is inspired by the ancient techniques combines them with contemporary subjects.

A member of the Taylor Foundation, Olivier Desvaux was named Official Painter of the Navy in 2018.
