Olivier de Kerten
Avant garde Contemporary Artist. Geometric Abstraction

is a contemporary French artist. In this website you will discover some of his artworks. In each of them there is the expression of a common language. He works in a structural universe, and he composes more and more complex structures from classical geometric shapes to create multiple dimensions in movement, with the sole aim of achieving emotional work. He carries out his creating process by exploring his own abstract and pictorial language: “emotional and geometric abstraction”. He thinks to convey profound spirituality and the depth of human emotion through a universal visual language of abstract forms and colors that transcended cultural and physical boundaries.

Designing is not a profession but an attitude. Design has many connotations. It is the organization of materials and processes in the most productive way in a harmonious balance of all elements necessary for a certain function. It is the integration of technological, social, and economical requirements, biological necessities, and the psychological effects of materials, shape, color, volume and space. Thinking in relationships.,
”Laszlo Moholy-Nagy”

Underlying aim

Any goal can be reached when you go to the basics but never compromise your values, and without struggle, success has no value.

Fundamental principle of thought

The arguments are often, and most of the time, only exhibitions of pretensions coloring in legitimacy and rationality what we would have done anyway. Georg Christoph Lichtenberg.”The mirror of the soul”.

Paradoxical thinking

Paradoxical thinking is not always an unfavorable concept, but it is a way of positively abstaining from aversive beliefs. It allows us to free our mind. It’s the process of consciously bringing together our two paradoxical sides to achieve outstanding results.

Feelings and abstract reality

Abstract art is not the creation of another reality but the true vision of reality. P. Mondrian

Positive mindset

Find yourself, create, no matter what comes out of it, you will already have achieved something great.

Game Over

‘Game over’ is not a state of failure it is just a new start.

Every culture that has lost myth has lost, by the same token, its natural healthy creativity. Only a horizon ringed about with myths can unify a culture. The forces of imagination and the Apollonian dream are saved only by myth from indiscriminate rambling. The images of myth must be the daemonic guardians, ubiquitous but unnoticed, presiding over the growth of the child's mind and interpreting to the mature man his life and struggles.
Friedrich Nietzsche - ”The Birth of Tragedy”

ART and Abstraction

These are the most exclusives oils and acrylic paintings the artist has executed during this last 10 years. These paintings are unique and a part of a collection named “The principle of thought”.

Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential.
Wassily Kandinsky

ART and Showroom

These are the most exclusives artworks the artist has displayed in private showrooms during this last 10 years. .

I am not looking for perfection but my shapes and colors are bringing me peace of soul. They are the essence of my artwork because I believe of the supremacy of pure feeling in my creative art.
Olivier de Kerten


Crowds are the most difficult thing for me these days because I have to walk with my head down and my eyes averted. There's still that part of me that wants to hold my head up, make eye contact and smile. (c)
