An Interview with Olivier Payeur.


Who and where are you from?

I'm Olivier Payeur, I'm from Toulouse, a great city in the south west of France.

How you got into this?

I've started to draw and paint from life about 10 years ago. I graduated from an engineering school and worked as an engineer, but I felt that I wanted to spend more time drawing. So I've painted and drawn more and more to escape my engineering job and become a painter.

I've spent a lot of time reading to learn about drawing anatomy, life model, basic painting principles, etc. I draw everywhere, every day, I always have a sketchbook in my pocket... like many self taught artists.

What is your driving force?

Because I can't paint and draw just the way I like, I keep trying and working on. It's like an obsession. And of course, there is the will to create some esthetic emotion. Here are the driving force.
I also like to experiment, so I don't go right to the point, I can loose a lot of time in trying things. But sometimes I find interesting things, inspiration is then reloaded.

What kind of work you do and why?

My main subject is the human figure, the style is classical with an accent on figurative drawing, which is the base of the painting.

I use traditional oil painting techniques and work only from models, not from photos. Inspiration comes from live models, their personality.

I like to experiment with colors and painting styles, including abstract elements. Anything that works to get a solid composition.

My goal is to create an emotion with a painting. When it works, it's very rewarding.
