"‘Born in London and living in Brooklyn, the artist Oliver Michaels is a visual artist which the specialty is to realize numerical photo montages.
Throw is projects, he ask all in once the question of urbanity, urban landscape and home perception.
In his photography production, he deconstructs a reality or more exactly architectural realities to weave it some new from his own rules. The result: imaginary building taking shape of perfect squares, and showing itself in a square centering photo. A kind of fantasized and dreamlike reality. He pulls out a surprising series, made of architectural details and ornaments, baptized: "Square in Square". For his project, he takes pictures of building founded on American roads between Brooklynn and Miami.
Oliver Michaels has exhibited widely at venues including Shoshana Wayne Gallery, Santa Monica; P.S.1, New York; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Cobra Museum of Modern Art, Amsterdam; Centre Culturel Suisse, Paris; and Tate Britain, London. His videos can be found in the permanent collections of institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Krefelder Kunstmuseen, Germany. Oliver Michaels has a BFA with honors from Central Saint Martins.”
