Olympio creates abstract compositions that reflect his internal rhythms, resulting in bold, expressive paintings.
Working intuitively, the artist defines his work as his own personal language—an unspoken expression of his soul.
Each piece is both everything and nothing; as simple as a heartbeat, as complex as a hurricane.
Born in Lomé, Togo, the self-taught West-African artist spent time in Paris before moving to the United States. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
Work by Olympio has been widely exhibited around the world at museums including: the Latino Art Museum in Pomona, CA; Chiba City Museum of Art in Chiba, Japan; and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art in Tokyo, Japan.
In 2018, he was listed as one of the top ten artists at Art Basel Miami by Red Dot Miami. Interviews with the artist have been featured on France 2, TV5Monde, and the BBC.
Olympio is one of sixty people from across the world selected to be exhibited in "Out of the Fire", the 14th edition of the Dakar Biennale, one of Africa’s oldest and largest exhibitions of contemporary art in Dakar, Senegal.
