Oliver Bevan is an English artist born in Peterborough in 1941 and educated at Eton College. He studied painting at the Royal College of Art in London where he became strongly influenced by Op Art and in particular the work of Victor Vasarely. Optical, geometric and kinetic art then served him well until the late 1970s when he moved to the Canada for a two-year teaching post at the University of Saskatchewan. By the time he returned to London in 1979 he had abandoned abstract art in favor of figurative realism and urban realism. He has been living in the south of France for the last 17 years and has developed and perfected his style.
