Jim Oliveira Studio

Jim Oliveira is an artist who unites color and texture through a pouring technique and process of his own design.


By incorporating ink and raw pigment into a gloss medium, he has created a material that can be poured but also controlled. The surfaces of his work vary depending on the amount of ink and pigments used; some have surfaces that resemble glass while others take on the rough characteristics of rock and earth. The enigmatic skins only hint at the materials and technique he employs.
