Olivier Leger, 8th June




Olivier Leger has become well known for his distinctive black and white nautical illustrations. Exploring themes of ecology, biology and nature,
Olivier's surreal drawings reimagine animals with their own landmasses and ecosystems. The detailed line drawings can take him several months to complete, his largest piece taking the better part of a year! 
Quite understandable when you realise all those intricacies are created with the use of fine liner pens, sized between 0.03 - 0.8mm. 

"This planet is home to a wonderful variety of living organisms that are each individual in their biology and behaviour. They form large webs of connections amongst one another in ecosystems that are vast and complex. From whale migrations that encompass the entire globe, to ants that scurry along the forest floor. We are all witness to the beauty of life on Earth.

Earth, the tiny little planet that we inhabit somewhere in the unfathomable depths of the universe."
