Since Oliver has always been deeply inspired by a 20th Century master artist, Nicolai Fechin, Oliver employs his influence in creating sensitive, emotional and dramatic portraits in vine charcoal. To capture the insight and warmth of each subject, then transfer it from life to drawing paper is Oliver’s motivation. To leave behind an essence of personality on drawing paper, along with intense personal feelings, is Oliver’s attempt to reveal his approach towards art and life.
Since 2011, Oliver has been lucky enough to come across a few distinguished contemporary artists as his mentors, ZhaoMing Wu, Henry Yan and Chung-Wei Chien. Their tireless guidance has urged him to put greater efforts in capturing fleeting human expressions and paying more attention to precise composition in figurative portraits. Oliver’s first art book, “Drawing the Head for Artists” is scheduled for publication by Rockport publisher on August 6th in summer 2019.
