Exhibition History of Oliver Strong

Biography / CV of Oliver Strong

Oliver Strong as a child, he grew up in South Africa. His family always lived in the country, which gave him ample opportunity to witness wildlife in its natural habitat. He encountered black leopards and buck in the veld, on his way home from school or had to deal with African Cobras nesting below the washing machines. These experiences gave him a healthy respect for wildlife and an affinity with them that often influences his choice of subject.

After a Navy career, he spent the next ten years plying the oceans as a yacht skipper. Years of living in close contact with the ocean, instilled a special love and yearning for anything related to the sea.

A professional artist since 1994, he has had the opportunity to sell his sculptures internationally to parks and private and corporate collectors and have public sculptures in numberous cities in the United States. After living in the US for a period of almost 14 years, he moved to the United Kingdom in 2005, where he now lives with his family in the countryside of Dorset.

Artist Statement of Oliver Strong

Oliver Strong`s Statement
I have an affinity with wildlife and sea life. I am impassioned by forms or shapes that show elegance of vigor and fluidity of movement.

Building sculpture can often be an intense experience - I feel I live it, as I am absorbed in my subject and the intricacies of creating it. I enjoy the challenge of working with metal, the heating and shaping of a flat sheet of bronze into a form of beauty.

Finally, if I can capture in my art some of the grace and vitality of my subject, then I have succeeded.
