"For the creation of works of art, there is a state of mind that must be preserved. This condition can be compared to the state of grace."
Olivier Anicet is a French visual artist who was born in Saint-Mandé in 1973 to parents who were from Guadeloupe.
A multi-faceted man
Olivier Anicet studied at the Ecole Supérieure of Modern Art and at the Paris Centre of Applied Arts. Trained in advertising graphics, he first worked in publishing for a few years, notably on children’s illustrations which he really related to as he had also worked as a chef in a creche. During this time, he also organised painting workshops for children.
