Bio

Olicorno is a self-taught contemporary artist from Saguenay, Quebec, Canada. He has been living in Montreal since 2009, where he now works full-time on his main art forms: painting, installation art, and performance art. ​In 2012 he graduated from HEC Montreal with a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration. The next year, following the success of his first performative painting series, "Beauty Is What You See,” he took the leap in becoming a professional artist.

 

Olicorno has exhibited in various museums and art galleries across Canada and performed at events such as TEDx Montréal. Today, you can see his visual creations in many private residences throughout America, Europe, and Asia, as well as in various public collections including The Senate of Canada (Ottawa), The National Exhibition Center (Saguenay), La Maison Des Artistes Visuels (Winnipeg), The Public Service Alliance of Canada, and the University of Montreal. He is greatly inspired by science, history, and philosophy. The study of symbolism and archetypes; shamanism; mythology; philosophy of sciences; body knowledge and anatomy; sensory experimentation; and philosophical questioning are recurring themes in his work.
