From a young age, Olivier de Coux’s passion for sculpture was palpable, evident in the sounds of his work echoing through his childhood bedroom. Despite a rejection from Paris’s École des Beaux Arts in 1991, he chose an unconventional path, immersing himself in the world of working artists rather than formal training. His artistic journey commenced with an exhibition in Saint Briac sur Mer in 1991, eventually leading to official recognition as a professional sculptor in 1995. Olivier’s studios ranged from a former electricity substation to an old mill, reflecting his nomadic yet deeply creative spirit.
