In August 2019 Oliver was entered into a competition and he won a place in the Young Artist Summer Show at the Royal Academy. Out of 6,200 submissions, only 135 artists were chosen to have their artwork displayed at the Royal Academy and Oliver was one of them!
Oliver is a talented emerging abstract artist.
He works in mixed media including acrylic, oils, spray paints, collage and finishing with oil pastels or chalk. Creating on anything he can including walls, skateboards, recycled wood and canvas.
Focused to create unique contemporary abstract art based from his thoughts and feelings at the time! His art is full of colour, texture and many hidden meanings. He tends to paint playing music, adding words and how the music makes me feel to the paintings.
Oli recently held his own exhibition at Marks & Tilt gallery, St Albans after the owner heard about his success in a competition which led to his art being hung in the Royal Academy.
Owner of Marks and Tilt gallery Ralph Tilt said:
"Oliver is a talented emerging artist and that is why we have decided to offer him this opportunity."
"I am always reluctant to compare such a young artist to other styles of work."
"Oliver is a unique painter. That said, his semi abstract work has been compared to Jean-Michel Basquiat. We're looking forward to great things from Oliver and this is just the beginning."
