bG Gallery presents its first solo exhibition of Olympio. Three recent bodies of work by the artist will be on display, including abstract expressionist works, letterings and figurations. Olympio creates abstract and figurative compositions that reflect his internal rhythms, resulting in bold, expressive paintings. Working intuitively, the artist channels paint as an expression of his energy. 
 "When I write in my paintings, I’m not just writing. I’m painting, playing music, dancing, there is a balance that I follow, I am developing my own language."  -       Olympio
 Born in Lomé, Togo, the self-taught West-African artist spent time in Paris before moving to the United States. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Olympio is one of sixty people from across the world selected to be exhibited in “Out of the Fire,” the 14th edition of the Dakar Biennale, one of Africa’s oldest and largest exhibitions of contemporary art in Dakar, Senegal. In 2018, he was listed as one of the top ten artists at Art Basel Miami by Red Dot Miami. Interviews with the artist have been featured on France 2, TV5Monde, and the BBC. Work by Olympio has been exhibited around the world at museums including: the Latino Art Museum in Pomona, CA; Chiba City Museum of Art in Chiba, Japan; and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art in Tokyo, Japan.
