Olivier Devignaud

French (b. 1967) - lives in Saint-Etienne

Painter, video maker and graphic designer, born on May 1967, former boxer, Olivier Devignaud works and lives in Saint-Etienne, France.
His style, graphic and gladly provocative, draws its inspiration from the advertising language and free figuration movement.
He gives a critical image of our consumer society.
The words and the typeface adopt an existential dimension in this work of «recycling» where angels’ wings, Vanities, everyday objects, theological and military references appear in recurring symbols in the form of graffiti or almost infantile iconographies.
Olivier Devignaud currently exhibits his work in France and abroad.
He received several distinctions for his art work in Japan in 1991, Dingle, Ireland and Ourense, Spain in 2007, London in 2010 (London International Creative Competition), Milan, Italy (Donkey Art Prize) and in Middletown, USA in 2011…
