About Olivier

Olivier is an Award winning multi-talented contemporary art specialising in hand drawn multi-coloured arts, digital, videos, photography and sell products.

Judge for Deaffest (Deaf Film, Arts Festival): art competition for Young Deaffest 2019.
Mental Capacity Act ‘Community Champion’ by raising awareness of the MCA with Deaf / Hard of Hearing 2016.

Recently mentioned by IPSE for ‘Highly Commended’ to Olivier Jamin with Christina Wheeler, hearing film-maker for IPSE’s Collaboration Awards 2021 and being part of Gloucester History Festival who are the winners of the Museum and Heritage Award (MHA) for The Pandemic Pivot Award 2021.

His achievements prove to be inspirational, continuing as a role model for many by facing, overcoming challenges and finding the space to share these experiences for people to learn from and be inspired by.

Constantly experimenting, finding new ideas/concepts, producing work combining the effect of colours, patterns, raising people’s imaginations and awareness with some of my work influenced from personal life experiences of being Deaf and from travels internationally. Olivier have also produced photography/videos via Instagram.

He has commissioned original artworks, designed trays, fashions, canvas and calendars, as well as printed posters for both private and commercial customers.

Some of the artworks can be scanned and printed on to fabric canvas (Silk and Cotton) or digitally printed posters for cheaper price than original artwork, however Olivier mostly designs unique exclusive pieces, which can also be requested according to customer specification.
