Sergio Olivos originates from Villahermosa, Mexico.
He holds a BFA in painting from Universidad de Queretaro, Queretaro, Mexico. Where before moving to the USA (2005), he was teaching painting, printmaking, drawing and encaustics.
He has exhibited throughout Mexico, to include the Museo de Arte de la Ciudad de Queretaro, Mexico City, Villahermosa. He has also exhibited throughout the Washington DC Metro area to and in other locations in the USA.
Sergio OlivosM resides in Arlington Virginia with his partner/wife and fellow artist Claudia Olivos and their son Julian. Although he is primarily a painter (specializing in encaustics) and a draftsman, he is also involved in assemblage work, collage, and other media. His interests lie in found objects in nature and semiotics. In the past year, Sergio has also been involved in the discovery of working with found wood. This has included various pieces varying from stools and tables made from tree trunks, to sinage he has carved messages and designs on. We are excited to see where this will take his process.
Sergio teaches at their home studio OlivosARTstudio, and at other local venues in the DC metropolitan area (please contact him if interested in purchasing one of his works or if you are interested workshops, classes, lectures).
