Biography

Olympe Racana-Weiler is a French painter born in 1990. In her works, she would often employ mixed media such as acrylic, iridescent and lithographic ink, graveled pigments, high- and low-quality oil, polyurethane, signage paint and enameled spray to sketch out ideas of her abstract paintings.

 

Her works of art consist of thick brushstroke layers gradually against bright undertones. Recurring themes of figures or elements are also illustrated boldly with colour rubbles of ultramarine, bright pink, violet and dioxide red tones spread across her stretched linen canvas. Thanks to an upbringing dedicated to dance, she developed a strong sensitivity to space, movements and lightings. Olympe wishes to make people seek for an unseizable presence when looking at her paintings.

 

Olympe Racana-Weiler received her BFA in Fine Arts and Arts Sciences at Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne – Centre Saint-Charles.
