OLYMPIO was born into a large family of six children in Lomé, Togo, West Africa. As far as he can remember, he has always been creating. He began his work by using building scraps to make sculptures. By the time he was in high school, he started to experiment with mixed media and collage.
Olympio’s work has been shown in Togo, Paris and the US where Olympio moved to in 2003.
Painting, for Olympio, is following a feeling. It is discovering the internal balance of a piece and recognizing beauty when it is unveiled, a happy accident. He starts with the blank canvas, a splash of blue, red, or whatever color speaks to him and goes from there. He uses oil, acrylic, brushes, his hands-anything he is inspired by. He scratches the canvas and uses paint straight from the tube. For him, there is no hidden story or elusive meaning behind each painting. It’s just a piece: it is everything and nothing. It is as simple as a heartbeat, as complex as a hurricane. His strength is creating an organic work with a raw energy which explodes from the canvas.
