Dassault Olivier

Dassault Olivier

His steadfast allegiance to traditional photography and his love for his Minolta allow Olivier Dassault to create the most surprising superimposed works.

The name Dassault belongs to a select list of families that have made France’s reputation: from the aviation industry to new technologies, from motion picture production to the international press industry, from fine art to fine wine, and from charities that the Dassault family supports, to those it initiates.

Born on June 1, 1951 in Boulogne-Billancourt (France), Olivier earned his Bachelor’s degree in Engineering from the French Air School in 1974. He then obtained a Master’s in Decision Theory Mathematics (1976), followed by a Doctorate in Computer Science Management (1980). An aviation aficionado, Olivier passed his professional IFR Pilot license and has since broken several world flight airspeed records.

« Creation is a source of energy and vitality revealing it to the world is just as exciting.»

Marcel Dassault’s grandson devotes his aviator’s heart and soul to serving and promoting various interests. A renowned professional of the press and communications industries, chief executive officer, deputy, accomplished musician and photographer, Olivier devours and pursues several lives at once. It is part of who he is: a man with an insatiable appetite and many talents !

Having mastered the art of creative photography, Olivier Dassault brings new meaning to abstract art, language that defines the artist.

« I like to create mutations between reality ans its replica, and to reveal a new creative aestheticby my choice of angles and composition. »

« Nathalie de La Grandville cultivates a significant number of paradoxes. These serve her need to express herself through an almost pictographic process. A process that, not only never excludes contradiction, but would certainly promote it. Her logic, that she claims loud and clear, escapes any reason. This does not mean that her compositions are absurd or abandoned to nonsense. Their constructrion proceeds from a sequence of figurative characters, which sketch a narrative. But it is unthinkable to only read the work of Nathalie de La Grandville as a territory haunted by characters described in an unpredictable perspective. We found ourselves trapped by a poetry of idiosyncrasy : these characters have become, under her brushes, the protagonists of the story she made of painting. »
