Painting, for Olympio, is following an instinct. It is discovering the internal balance of a piece and recognizing beauty when it is unveiled: a happy accident. Olympio’s work is honest and palpable. It is exposed, raw, and uncompromisingly direct. His work is rough and energetic, yet balanced by a peace and stillness that emanate from below the surface of each work.
Olympio’s work continues to be exhibited in the United States and internationally. His work has been exhibited at Art Basel Miami, where in 2018 he was ranked one of the Top 10 Artists at Art Basel by Red Dot Miami. He has also been recently interviewed and featured by France 2, TV5Monde, and the BBC.
