Born in 1981 - Belgium
Active under the pseudonym "Fantomboy81", a self-taught Belgian artist born in 1981 in Liège, Olivier Demet has been painting under various forms (traditional fresco, customization, graffiti).
In his early teens he developed a taste for visual and artistic interventions, especially when he discovered the artist Keith Haring and the emergence of graffiti in his hometown. His first influences were mainly derived from urban art and this aesthetic aspect is still very present in his work. For several years, Olivier has been doing graffiti, painting, photography and digital art, as he has a true desire for visual creations.
A central theme was put into place naturally in his creations, defining his artistic approach and this allowed him to create works which were related to one another through shape and content. Creations of Fantomboy81 are not only instinctive (staging compulsive strokes) and well-thought (composition, colors.…). His paintings have an abstract appearance, graphical elements are repeated, superimposed and intertwined without any limit. The repeated gestures bring along a strong dynamism in his strokes.
This need to repeat the same gestures, demarcate these colorful zones with strokes derived from graffiti. Olivier deliberately wants to preserve these work codes. In his creation process, there isn't any limit, whether it's with his medium (canvas, paper, wall, 3D objects...)Acrylics, ink and spray paint are his favorite "weapons".
Olivier has been participating in several artistic projects and exhibitions since 2008.
