"The secret of creativity consists in preserving youth inside. The secret of a genius consists in preserving childhood's soul all life long". Pavel Florensky

The artist Lucia Oliva exhibiting at Middle East Stone in Dubai, United Arab Emirates in 2015
The work of Lucia Oliva, eclectic contemporary artist, communicates through an intuitive and universal language, rich in astonishing scenic effects, meant to have both an emotional and a conceptual impact on the observer.
She is a self-taught artist, who grew up loving music, dance, sculpting, painting, literature and drama. Also, she likes to write poems. After an early award-winning debut as a young painter, she went back to figurative arts in 2013, as a development of her long international career in the world of art as choreographer, dancer and event organiser.
"Sculpting with colour" on stone, metal or other materials, Oliva creates subjects embodied in artworks rich in harmony and movement that highlight an idea of pure lightness.
Playing with mirrors and other accessories she recently invented her unique concept which creates a sort of contemporary “trompe l'oeil” effect, with original scenic set-ups that are a combination of sculpture, painting, installation and theatre: her peculiar interpretation of the anamorphosis phenomenon gives life to artworks that consist in a tangible side and an ethereal one, body and soul of the same entity.

Oliva's unique art has been granted an immediate and ever growing success in many solo, group exhibitions and art symposiums all around the world. Her works are owned by private collectors in Europe as well as in the UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, the Philippines and other countries.

Among the standing out collections in the Middle East: H.H. Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi (UAE), H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan (UAE), H.E. Khalid Abdullah Al Ghurair (UAE), H.E. Abdul Majied Seddiqi (UAE), H.E. Dr. Mohammad Bin Al Zubair (Oman), H.E. Dr. Rasheed Al Safi Khamis Al Huraibi (Oman), Dr. Amit Ashiwn Dharamsey (Oman), Pharmacy One (Jordan).
