Oliver Tanner Art and Design combines traditional techniques with emerging technologies to produce a selection of art and bespoke design. Utilising methods of casting thousands of years old with CAD technology and digital fabrication we are able to realise a wide variety of projects from our Sydney studio.
An artist and designer, Oliver was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. His parents' interest in creative pursuits, his father’s architectural practice, as well as a fortunate friendship with artist Bronwyn Oliver set him on a path towards creative pursuits at an early age.
First taught by artist and friend Bronwyn Oliver to operate a blowtorch and work copper at 15, Oliver was selected for the Art Express touring exhibition, leading him to pursue an education in the arts; first at the College of Fine Arts and then at Sydney's National Art School.
After graduation, Oliver continued his fine arts education, completing studies at the New York Studio School as well as completing a residency at the Red Gate Gallery in Beijing. Following his studies, Oliver has pursued work in both Sydney, Australia and Berlin, Germany – most notably winning a large commission for a piece that is currently displayed in Bei Wu Sculpture Park in Berlin.
Oliver’s work is currently in public and private collections in Europe, the United States, Asia and Australia.
His primary studio is in Sydney, Australia.
