Olivier Tossan

Mixing strong visual forms with whimsical design this illustration is by the uber talented Olivier Tossan. Scene designer, graphic artist, illustrator, painter and sculptor, Olivier spent most of his life in Paris, France where he early on used drawing as a means of escape. Olivier studied Scene Design at the Ecole Nationale Superieure Des Arts Decoratifs in Paris and for a decade put that degree to full use working on various architecture projects, exhibitions and trade fair designs. Olivier's drawings, paintings and sculpture have exhibited in various galleries in Paris and Berlin and he has created illustrations and artwork for publishing houses such as Libertion, Milan Press, Figaroscop, Bayard Press, Milan Editions, Editions De La Martiniere, Flamarion and Magnard Editions. Currently residing in Berlin, Olivier is also freelancing for Blue Sky Studios as well as other animation studios as a visual development artist and character designer.
