Meet the artist: Olivier Van Dam
Olivier Van Dam is the artist behind these works of Belgian modern art. Born and bred in Brussels, Olivier started painting 20 years ago. He is strongly inspired by cities, and is always checking out the latest street art.
It’s clear that he loves to capture the explosivity, noise and dynamism of modern-day city life in his artwork.
The other characteristic that comes out is his use of vibrant, hot and spicy colors. Actually, “hot and spicy” refers to another aspect of Oliver’s life. In his nine-to-five life he’s a chef. He used to run a popular restaurant in Brussels. Now he is chef at a large international school in Brussels.
Olivier describes his paintings as a mix of chaos and hope: “Life is chaotic, and rarely goes according to plan,” he says. “But at heart I am an optimist. So in my paintings I try to represent chaos and confusion, but always with a strong, bright hope for a better world.”
Olivier doesn’t paint with paint brushes, but with knives and wall scrapers. Check out other work by him on Olivier Van Dam’s Instagram page.
