Olivier Duhamel is a figurative sculptor specialising in nude female bronze figurines.
Classical and elegant in style, his creations do not convey any particular message, do not attempt any conceptual or symbolist exploration, nor do they search to be innovative at all cost. Olivier Duhamel is rather simply trying to capture the beauty and sensuality of his subject of study.
Like few other sculptors, Olivier Duhamel casts his own bronzes in is home foundry. This allows him to maintain full control over the entire creative process. He prides himself on the quality of his craftsmanship.
A New Zealander since 1987 French born Olivier Duhamel lives and works on Waiheke Island in New Zealand.
His bronze works are sold in galleries across New Zealand and Australia but also in France, Belgium and China. He is the author of the popular "Bronze Casting Manual".
