The sea and sailing still inspire Olivier Messas who continues to paint his sailing boats suspended between sky and sea in 2018.

[ Pushed by the wind on a sailboat... This series is inspired by a sailing boat trip in the south of France, between the island of Porquerolle and Saint-Tropez... "I know the skies bursting with lightning, and the waterspouts, and the undertow and the currents: I know the evening, the exalted dawn, and a people of doves, and I have sometimes seen what man thought he saw! "Rimbaud's "Le bateau ivre" (The Drunk Boat) 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 consenting, adventurer of sensations sometimes soft, sometimes strong, Olivier lets himself be carried away by the wind and sets sail towards the unknown. He is not afraid of the implacable hazards of nature but, on the contrary, allows himself to be seduced by all its merciful energies and intoxicated by the wind, the water and the weather. His paintings recreate the ancestral pleasures of being on the water, of listening to the silence of the sea, of 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 long-distance captains, when pushed by the wind, when it hits the sails and the sailboat leans abruptly at sea level and we want to reach its port. We are all reckless sailors, sailing in rough seas, freebooters pushed by waves and waves, trying to hang on and not sink. Scared of drowning, we maneuver, trying to keep control of our boat so that it doesn't overturn, because of too big a wave or too violent a gust of wind that would tear our sails. Our life is a long sailboat that we have to constantly put back in balance... With this series, "Esprit voile", Olivier invites us to make the difference, not to be afraid, to choose what is important, not to let ourselves be swallowed up by the little things, and just move forward, on our drunken boat... Written by W. Willebrod Wegimont, author, scriptwriter. ]

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.
