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 Rabbits.
