Olivier Masmonteil (born September 23, 1973, [Romilly-sur-Seine, France]) is a French [artist]. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux from 1996 to 1999. As a painter, Olivier Masmonteil dedicates his work exclusively to landscapes.[1] While offering a variety of treatment, the paintings of Olivier Masmonteil assume a thematic unity which the landscape is both the substance and form, subject and object, the content and container.[2] Globetrotter artist, he has started a second world tour in Asia (India, Thailand, Vietnam) and South America (Chile, Brazil).[3]
