Ollag is a French painter, living in Bordeaux. He entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux in 1966 at the age of 14 with a special age waiver on personal file, granted by Mr. Jacques Chaban-Delmas, then Mayor of the City of Bordeaux. He became a freelance graphic designer and advertising illustrator in the 70s and 80s for regional branches of national advertising and communication agencies.
From 2000 to 2014 he was the Artistic Director and Designer of a large company specializing in home decoration (tableware, furniture, lighting, etc...). It is in 2018 that he decides to devote himself entirely to his artistic approach.
"The whole of my artistic life has turned to the sense of beauty that the nature of all things offers me. It is through what I want to see and retain essential that I undertake its creative reconstruction. I erase everything and start again!" OLLAG
