About Olivier Duhamel

A New Zealander since 1987, French born Olivier Duhamel lives on Waiheke Island near Auckland, New Zealand with his wife Marie-France and their 3 children.
He is a sculptor specializing in the female human form and makes delicately crafted small bronze figurines.
Olivier Duhamel’s 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. They are rather trying to simply capture the beauty and sensuality of his subject of study.
His bronze works are sold in art galleries across New Zealand and also in Australia, China, France and Belgium.
