Olivier Bonnet

Meet the artist

Olivier has been drawing since childhood. He grew up and lived in several countries in Europe, Asia and Africa where he mingled with local artists, which influenced his creativity and sensitivity. Amongst other artistic ventures during these stays, he shot and developed black and white photographs and explored Chinese calligraphy. For the last fifteen years, he has published cartoons in the quarterly publications of an international humanitarian organization.

Olivier settled in the region in 2005. He became involved in the arts scene, performing in community theatre (Théâtre de l’Île) and in the visual arts. He has participated in several individual and collective exhibitions in the Outaouais region and in Ottawa, such as in the Arts Centre in Chelsea and the New Art Festival in Ottawa.  About Olivier's exhibit
