Olfa Bouzenad was born in Algeria and moved to France at the age of three. She started painting at a young age and participated in her first collective exhibition when she was only 22.
The artist has experimented with a variety of different mediums, including oil, pastel, watercolour and collage, as well as working with copper engravings, stained glass and mosaics.
As well as using a variety of different mediums, Bouzenad’s works feature a range of subjects, from figurative subjects, the sea and butterflies, to more abstract compositions. These abstract works are especially striking for their vibrant colours and dynamic compositions. She sees her art as an expression of her own sensitivity and aims to transport the viewer to a dreamlike and otherworldly realm.
Bouzenad has exhibited across Europe. In 2006 her works were exhibited in Belgium, and in 2009 she received the Pastellist Prize at the Carrousel du Louvre. In 2010 and then again in 2017, she exhibited her works in the Place du Tertre in Montmartre, a famous spot for local Parisian artists to show their work. She is currently living in Paris and working from her studio near the Sacré-Coeur and Bateau-Lavoir in, where she has been based since 2007.
