The sea and sailing still inspire me as much as ever and I continue to paint my sailing boats suspended between the sky and the sea in 2017. This series, which began in 2012, will gain new momentum this year.... Pushed by the wind on a sailboat... This series is inspired by a sailboat trip in the south of France, between the island of Porquerolle and Saint-Tropez... "I know the heavens dying in lightning, and the waterspouts, and the backwashes and the currents: I know in the evening, the exalted dawn and a people of doves, and I have sometimes seen what man thought he had seen! "Rimbaud's "Le bateau ivre" may have inspired this series where it is about travel and sailing boats but not only... Passenger of his boat at the same time, prisoner and willing, adventurer of sensations sometimes soft, sometimes strong, Olivier lets himself be carried away by the wind and sets a course towards the unknown. He is not afraid of the implacable hazards of nature but, on the contrary, lets himself be seduced by all his merciful energies and intoxicated by the wind, water and time.

His paintings restore these ancestral pleasures of being on the water, listening to the silence of the sea, dreaming to the little blue music of the waves mixed with that of the wind in the sails. But with this "Esprit voile" series, it is above all about life: we are all captains in the long run, when pushed by the wind, when it hits the sails and the sailboat leans suddenly to sea level and we want to reach its port. We are all reckless sailors, sailing in rough seas, buccaneers pushed by waves and hollows, trying to hold on and not sink.

Frightened at the thought of drowning, we manoeuvre, we try to keep control of our boat so that it doesn't overturn, because of a too big wave or a too violent gust that would shred our sails. Our life is a long sailboat that we must constantly balance... With this series, "Esprit voile", Olivier, invites us to make the right balance, not to be afraid, to choose the important thing, not to let ourselves be swallowed up by the little things, and just to move forward, on our drunk boat... Written by W. Willebrod Wegimont, author, screenwriter.

OLIVIER MESSAS

37 fans

KARLSRUHE (76), GERMANY

163 works

Olivier Messas' work creates a sense of unmovable serenity. In it, faraway echoes of the philosophies of Buddhism and Yoga can be seen. The artist leads us down a path to wellbeing and internal calm.

An evasive and libertarian atmosphere

Originally born in Vietnam, Olivier soon moved with his family to Lyon, France, where he spent his childhood and teenage years. Beginning his career with an apprenticeship and then practical experience in fashion design in Paris, after ten years, in June 2012, he began working on pictorial art.

A self-taught artist, Messas’ approach borrows methods he developed during his career in fashion and textiles. Thus, his creative process is organised around a single subject which he reinterprets throughout the year.

To lands of salvation

Designed as small themed collections, Olivier Messas' series deal with the concepts of escape, travel memories and atmospheres, diversity and freedom of expression. In his technique, he creates a harmonious structural composition enriched by a bright and nuanced palette of colours.

Messas currently lives in France and Germany. His works feature in a large number of permanent exhibitions in galleries around the world.
