Olivier Payeur, figurative drawing & painting from France

Olivier Payeur is a French born painter currently living Toulouse, France. He’d been working as an engineer for years before becoming an illustrator, then a painter, as a self-taught artist.

His main subject is the human figure and his style is classical with an accent on figurative drawing, which is the base of the painting. He uses traditional oil painting techniques and works only from models, not from photos. Inspiration comes from live models, their personality.

His paintings include semi-abstract background, anything that works to get a solid composition. Experimenting colors and style is a key to go further and renew its own art.

“My goal is to get powerful compositions. I like to experiment with colors and painting styles, including abstract elements”
