Numerous visits to France since 1995 had a huge impact on Alexis Olins art. Since then, painting, photography and music have become connected with all the projects to which he relates. On par with that, though, brushes with canvas and digital drawing with computer and tablet remain a priority. The edition of the K9 comic book magazine and the fascination with the FrancoBelgian School of graphic novels form the basis for writing and creating paintings and illustrations. Later, the work of the Renaissance, as well as contemporary artists from Europe and Asia, inspired him their turn. The creation and launch of his own brand “Métrique” now gives him the ability to express his singular talent and show his art on clothes & fabrics, using them as canvases, thus unleashing his style outside the walls of the studio and galleries. An holistic approach to art and the use of all mediums and supports of creation are key to Alexis’ vision. Alexis Olin is also at the origin of famous collections & series as an NFT artist since 2020, as his Meditation Rabbit collection.
Dreams were very important to the ancient Egyptians. In ancient Egyptian times, the dream world existed between the land of the living and the world on the other side, a world inhabited by deities and the spirits of the dead. Dreams were communications from those entities. They believed the gods could communicate with you through your dreams. The Ancient Egyptians believed so strongly about the power of dreams to foretell the future and offer advice, that they had rituals to incubate their dreams. In this "Dream World" collection, characters, as well as sacred scenes and plots, come to life. The minimalism of black and white drawings is a homage to petroglyphs and the key to understanding the material and subtle worlds of my Universe. With an NFT the first collector receives an original of physical artwork (100 x 100 cm, acrylic on canvas, rolled in tube).
