Artist Statement:

Born 1957, France A New Zealander since 1987, French born Olivier Duhamel is a respected figurative sculptor. A prolific artist and regular exhibitor, Duhamel has acquired a masterful command of the figurative form. His bronze figurines and laminated sculptures have won awards and are held in many private and public collections, including the Wallace Arts Trust. After extensive travels in Europe, northern, western and central Africa and the South Pacific, the young Duhamel settles in New Zealand in 1987 and become a citizen in 1992. He now lives and works on Waiheke Island near Auckland from where he has spent the last 10 years establishing a bronze sculpture practice and a network of art galleries representing his work in New Zealand, in Australia and in Europe. He teaches practical creative workshops, publishes a number of popular art manuals, offers pencil drawings and life casting services on commission and runs a life drawing class. He has been a student of David Reid (bronze casting) and Chrystle Legardinier (etching on copper plate) He has worked on contract for the studio of American sculptor Jeff Koons, NYC He is the director of [ s p a c e ] contemporary art gallery on Waiheke Island.

 My creations do not convey any particular message, do not attempt any conceptual or symbolist exploration, nor do they search to be innovative at all cost. I am rather trying to simply capture the beauty and sensuality of my subjects of study. When it comes to art, I am chiefly concerned with beauty, emotion and mastery of my craft.
