Belgium - bruxelles
Olivier Binamé aka Oli-B is a multi-faceted street artist from Brussels. His work ranges across a huge array of media: acrylic, spray paint as well as digital or screen-printing techniques on a wide variety of surfaces, including canvas, paper, wood, walls or even 3D volumes.
His flow operates on various fronts. Visually, it is fluidity that predominates, colours that are emphatic but balance each other; and a composition that binds everything together. Since his teenage spray paint period he painted what he loved – shapes and colours – and flirt now with contemporary art. The letters developed in the direction of characters, the characters towards forms.
From abstract and figurative shapes charged with vivid colors, Oli-B molds the frontiers of his singular universe, where onirism interweaves with harmony and hope. Each piece writes its story and unveils new facets. This shiny space is animated by the artist’s desire for equilibrium and serenity. When he crosses that frontier, he deploys his ideal and optimistic vision of the world, in opposition to the real image tainted with bitterness that he sometimes has of it.
Oli-B loves the hustle and bustle of big cities and their crowds and uses the public spaces as a playground. He also makes his art living by integrating it in the urban jungle through mural painting and collage. His canvas, posters and murals are all hand-painted unique pieces. Since almost 10 years, in addition to numerous national and international collaborations, the artist has produced monumental colored paintings in Europe, United States and of course Belgium. The inhabitants have always welcomed the presence of these works, emphasizing on the positivity they brought to the public space and the enhancement of their environment through the living art that was implanted there.
Oli-B invites you to his colorful, positive and vivid universe, where shapes, people and other elements born out of his imagination intermingle in an intuitive and spontaneous manner. An imaginary and secluded place, where movements and rhythm are highly important. He makes colors dance and opens you the doors to an environment where the sense is created differently according to the lectures and interpretations.
