"On cherche toujours de nouveaux artistes,alors que l'on oublie que l'on a des connaissances qui on un véritable talent. Olivier Duhamel est un artiste confirmé,j'ai eu la chance de découvrir quelques petites sculptures directement arrivées de Nouvelle Zélande chez mes amis de la galerie Intimerance, ,je les ai admirées, palpées, caressées tellement elles étaient belles. "
Manuela, Belgium, July 2009

Go Virginia! "

"Thank you so much for the lovely drawing of my wife. We are delighted with it, you have done an excellent job of obtaining a true likeness as well as capturing her personality and character. The work was done quickly and most professionally and we are truly delighted with the result."
Mark, France, November 06

"… un petit moment de pur bonheur pour les yeux. Ce que vous faites est magnifique. Bravo.. les portraits de nus sont splendides, le trait de crayon parfait."
Christine (Paris, France October 06)

"I really like this sculpture as her form really draws me in and is an interest to it. The hind end is large and well formed. I like the patina color with this too. You did capture the voluptuousness of her and it is very appealing. I've seen a lot of anatomically correct torsos that weren't interesting and didn't draw you in but this one does and I really like it."
Tamara, Northren California
"Vos dessins sont magnifiques... Mais j'ai un gros coup de coeur pour vos sculptures..."
Manuela, Belgique
"That piece has a nice feeling of fleshiness and softness to it. It's the distortions and imperfections that create interest, and I might add, as long as they're done with taste ..."
Ironman, New Mexico
"That is a very refreshing piece. It's hard to find a new insight for human anatomy. It has been done so much. Yours is warm and touchable. I think it is a wonderful piece."
Scout, GA
"I think this is a fantastic piece-- I particularly like her subtle quarter-turn to the right instead of relying solely on the deep arch in her sacrum for motion."
Obseq, Canada

"Olivier Duhamel's nudes take on a life of their own. Light falls softly on the skin's contours, transforming the body into a sculptural work... after all, in these drawings, the female body becomes something to be celebrated rather than hidden away by layers of clothing"
Whitney Barton ("Waiheke Marketplace" - june 2006)

"Je suppose que vos modeles doivent etre fieres de poser pour vous comme vous devez etre fier de pouvoir les "croquer". Vous etes un artiste un vrai, cela se sent chez vous, c'est dans votre ame et surement inne. Bravo continuez ainsi a nous faire decouvrir la beaute du corps, sans pudeur, sans arriere-pensee, juste parce que c'est beau et qu'il faut le montrer pour que les gens en prennent reellement conscience."
Valerie (Quebec - June 2006)

" I just had to tell you how much I loved your sketches! I especially liked the female nudes. It made me want to pick up my pencils again after a long time :)
Anyway, just wanted to let you know how much I admire your work. "
Thanks, "

Michelle (Australia - may 2006)


"Olivier Duhamel jongle entre portraits et nus avec ses graphites, toujours travaillés avec douceur...Il s'adonne également à la sculpture avec bonheur."
Douxpastel (France)

" I believe your art is some of the best I have ever found. Simple and yet so exotic with your lines and shades. I hope to someday capture life as you have done in your art."
N Huff, May 2006

"The New Zealand artist Olivier Duhamel uses his basic materials, like graphite or charcoal, with a stunning virtuosity. His nudes show a decent study of the human anatomy and a respectful approach of his subjects, images of dedication and a celebration of the human form.
To capture a model on paper with the artistic freedom Duhamel achieves, takes practice, time and a keen eye for proportion. I know from experience that although his drawings may look simple, they are surely not, the composition, the endless shades of grey and the usage of shortening are really hard to master.

My personal favorites are his Virginia series, the big woman lounging, she becomes nearly a monument herself, sculptured by subtle shades of grey.

Art of Love, February 2006

"When it comes to erotic art in graphite or charcoal, Kiwi artist Olivier Duhamel is at once a magician and master. Few graphite artists will ever achieve the prolific, lifelike sensuality that distinguishes this artist from all the rest. 10 out of 10."
David Heatherington
January 10th, 2006.
