Canadian Painter Olivier Dumoulin

By: Azad Karimi

I think painting will always have a place in the world of art as a means of expression, and I'm continually surprised at how inventive painters can be. New technologies have also opened up a myriad of new opportunities that we will be exploring for years to come.

 

Interview

Canadian Painter Olivier Dumoulin

By Azad Karimi

 

The Kurds say time is like gold. This statement by Mr. Olivier confirms this Kurdish proverb:

"I also always stress a responsible use of art supplies and resources - my studio is a zero-waste space".

If you know the value of time, you will think about the optimal use of its facilities.

These possibilities include individual talent, motivation, creativity, complete knowledge of nature and man and the relationship between phenomena and concepts ...

I take this opportunity to tell my dear friends that I will collect and compile these interviews and look for work related to its publication in book form in the coming weeks.

I think I have been able to use time and do good work that is useful to people all over the world.

My dear friend Olivier is one of the precious spiritual jewels of Canadian society and humanity. How good it is that he exists and serves art and wisdom.

I wish my dear friend Olivier more success, progress, and happiness.

 

Thank you!
