Olivier Messas - Painter
"Each of my paintings is a step forward towards the harmony that I search for continually."

Born in 1977 in Ho-Chi-Minh-City in Vietnam, Olivier Messas is a painter currently living between France and Germany.

Familial and cultural baggage

Having left Vietnam for France when he was just two years old, Olivier Messas quickly developed a very independent nature despite a strong attachment to his family and his cultural values. After studying as an accountant, which really didn’t satisfy his aspirations for the future, he left the family cocoon and focused his attention on fashion and styling, before finally learning to express his creativity and his artistic universe through painting.

Between pragmatism and reality

Representing a perfect balance between spirituality and realism, painting, for a young artist, is a conduit through which to express his emotions and his cultural heritage as well his need to escape through colours, shapes and motifs. He has drawn inspiration from his extensive travels and feeds on his encounters with different cultures.  Over the years, he has refined his style which is characterized today by bright colours and clear lines.

The desire to share

Discovering that a fundamental part of his art is the ability to share, Olivier Messas exhibits his works as often as possible and genuinely enjoys his encounters with the viewing public.  Already with several awards to his name such as the “Painting and Sculpting” prize from the International Contemporary Art Salon in 2016, his work has also earned him permanent exhibitions in France and abroad.
