Artist Statement

In the artist's works, one observes her admiration for cultural diversity and the written word. The canvases, especially the “Graffiti” Series, feature drawn text, painted letters, newspaper headlines from different countries, and multicultural artistic manifestations. He studied the pixo that transforms the written word into a work of art, which customizes scratches and forms, creating a new language full of codes and signifiers. The “Graffiti Series” mixes stamping and collage techniques with urban art techniques such as the use of stencil and spray paint. The main feature of this work is the depth of its canvases, with several layers of acrylic paint and spray paint. Ana Olivier inserts elements on each other in order to present the art of the walls, as several artists paint and spray paint on each other's work, creating collective works with various interventions. His works aim to arouse in the observer a critical reflection on the role of art in the construction of culture.

The artist began her painting studies in 1990, in Brasilia, developing monotypy works on paper and gouache ink, using pieces of glass as brushes. During the following years, he participated in several courses of painting in oil, acrylic and metal paint. He has taken a course in fine arts, graphic arts, interior design, stamping, batik, collage, graffiti (in Brasilia and New York - Brooklin) and is graduating in Visual Arts. She graduated in Letters and has a postgraduate degree in Literature and International Relations from the University of Brasilia and a master's degree in Political Science from Candido Mendes.
