Olivier Leogane was born in 1980 in Paris from Guadeloupe native parents. Based in Montréal, Canada.
No matter in which form, painting has always been driven by an invisible and unexplained force that imposed itself to me. To this day, I still can’t explain where this relationship stems from, but it is nevertheless part of my being, my very core.
From a very young age, I learned to express myself through crayon drawings or felt-tip pen on paper. It is, however, during my teenage years that I fully embraced that yearning. Street art and spray paint allowed me to discover the universe of creativity, color and space. My studies kept me away from my passion, so street art became my school.
From 2009 on, I was able to choose a different art route – acrylic paint on canvas. I define myself as a self-learning artist.
