"Idealist" was inspired by this short line: "Hidden in despair from the pain of the heir, he threw himself into the outcast he was looking for for something beyond tomorrow". It is the portrait of a model friend of mine from Milan who showed me the "invisible" side of the fashion world and the many obstacles he faces as a man of colour.

Oliver Pavic was born in 1974 in Maribor, Slovenia, then still Yugoslavia. After the Balkan War, he decided to become an architect to help rebuild the country. During his studies in Ljubljana, he met the famous Slovenian modernist painter Zoran Mušič. Oliver was particularly fascinated by Mušič's haunting self-portraits and his distinctive painting technique.

In 1996, Oliver almost gave up architecture in favour of painting if not for the opportunity to study in London. He graduated from the prestigious Architectural Association in 2000 and worked as an architect until 2015.

In 2009 Oliver visited Gerhard Richter's portrait exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London which had a profound impact on his artistic journey and ultimately his life. Realizing that architecture would never allow him to express his creativity the way he wanted to, Oliver left the profession in 2015 and became a self-taught artist.

His distinct painting style explores opacity and ambiguity and moves between representational and semi-abstract. His wiping and brushing technique is motivated by the texture and form left by the oils he manipulates. Her inspirations come from the classical period, the new romantics and contemporary artists.

Oliver's first major exhibition was the prestigious Le Salon Des Artistes Français in Paris in February 2019 at the Grand Palais as part of Art Capital. Subsequently, he exhibited at The Other Art Fair in London in March 2019. He creates between London and Paris and continues to push his own boundaries in search of recognition in a non-generic way.
