Dr. Olivier Leogane

Section Head - Faculty of Arts and Science, MIL Campus, Université de Montréal

Self-taught painter, Olivier, develops an art vector of communication which through works full of energy and emotions invites us to escape as well as to question ourselves. This art, which he has named Art HORAGAI, has allowed him to exhibit in solo and group shows in Quebec, New York, Paris, and in China.
Beyond his artistic talent, a striking element of his character is his duality. In fact, a graduate of the University of Montreal, with a doctorate in organic chemistry, he claims to be an artist in a chemist's body oscillating between 2 spheres of repulsive nature. In recent years, he has invested in making this particularity a source of inspiration and is driven by a deep desire to share experience and transfer knowledge, especially to young people.
