Oliver Ney
Introducing you to his latest project.

In his daily life Oliver tries to be zero waste as much as possible and wanted to adapt this ethos into his art.

“I have always loved pointillism and I wanted to reinvent this mouvement with a touch of modernism and street art. In my other projects I use spray paints and I had a lot of spray caps used on the sides. I told myself that it would be smart to use them to make pieces of art in pointillism rather than to throw them in the garbage like a common waste. I also negotiate with my spray paints sellers so that they solicit their customers to bring back their used caps so that I can have my raw material to create. And now I invite you to see the result” – Oliver Ney

This project started a little before the confinement due to Covid 19. The first one is the Joker. It’s made up with 900 caps painted and fixed by hand on a black wooden panel. For the other works, the number of caps varies between 900 and 2000 pieces.
