About the artist:

Olivier Salvas is an artist and educator who specializes in arts education and the maker movement in a second language setting. Originally from Montreal, QC, Olivier moved to Vancouver, British-Columbia shortly after completing his Bachelors of Education in Teaching French as a Second Language from University of Montreal. As he embarked in his Graduate Studies in Media Studies and Curriculum at the University of British-Columbia, Olivier merged his two passions of artist and educator and he began to create artistic work based on educational research. Olivier uses abstract paintings, photography and various media to bring light to social causes and to foster conversations about identity and arts education. Olivier's area of research and of creation are inspired by graffiti art, street art, urban culture and contemporary artists from Les Automatistes in Quebec. When Olivier begins an artistic collection based on his findings, he thinks of a topic in the world that resonates with him. Then, he creates a story with this event and he creates a main character. He asks,”What would this character do, think, or say?”. Subsequently, Olivier pairs up with a photographer to create a visual story, which inspires him for the the direction he wants to take artistically with his message. Olivier was chosen an ambassador for the the BC Culture Days 2019 where he presented his project “Rebel With a Cause”, a reflection on the maker’s movement and it’s impact on learner’s identity within the school system. Olivier has collaborating with Vancouver Biennale as an educator for the Big Ideas in Schools project since 2015. Olivier recently joined the team of the ARPORT_making waves curated project We Are Ocean Vancouver, as an artist educator collaborating with artist Cease Wyss on a youth project on climate change and the ocean with a strong focus on Indigenous principles of learning. This project is part of the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development by IOC Unesco.
