“My creations do not convey any particular message, do not attempt any conceptual or symbolist exploration, nor do they search to be innovative at all cost. I am rather trying to simply capture the beauty and sensuality of my subjects of study. When it comes to art, I am chiefly concerned with beauty, emotion and mastery of my craft.” - Olivier Duhamel
