French Art made in Denmark

Olivier Blois-Puls, French contemporary self-taught artist born in 1960 in Paris (France).
I have always been fascinated and attracted by all forms of creation and its process.
I knew I wanted to be an artist from a young age and that drawing and painting will be one of my means of self-expression.
But the academic art schools didn’t attract me; on the contrary, I wanted to experiment and cultivate my own imagination free from any outside influences.
My training is self-taught based on the museums I have visited in Europe and the United States, Art books and music.
Attracted by the modern art effervescence, I rushed frequently to the Pompidou center, the first modern art center in Paris which opened in 1977, getting knowledge and inspiration.
I settled in Copenhagen (Denmark) in 1985 and was part of the well-known Danish animated feature film “Valhalla” (Swan production).
In 1986 I created my own graphic style called LEITMOTIV which is inspired of Minimalism and OpArt.
My figurative and abstract works are experiments with geometrical forms, colors and technics such as gilding leaf.
In 1999-2000 I was part of a project in Copenhagen, designing the school entrance of the future.
Over the past ten years I have been able to fully focus on my art career.
I create from my studio house near Copenhagen in a green and quiet area, which provides me with a wonderful creative environment to further develop my work.
