Born in 1983, Oliver Polanski’s always had a natural flair for art. Being brought in creative and artistic surroundings, he knew very early on that he wanted to pursue a career in Art & Design.
His mother, a successful weaver, who studied at the Royal College of Arts, influences Oliver in his every day life. Although she is not here, her works are still displayed around his home, providing inspiration.
Being a visual person, Oliver is always looking out for new ideas, capturing environmental surroundings and structures, and making visual statements in his work. Studying and living in London, means Oliver is able to capture the cultural wealth, atmosphere and diversity around him and exploit it within his work. ‘I’m always trying to develop and create something new and exiting within his work. I firmly believe that contention is the death of invention and that progress is crucial to creative stimulation, something that is evident in the continual development of my style’.
His creative development began in college, where he studied a Foundation Art course, which lead on to him studying a Degree in Visual Design at Middlesex University.
