Olsen is a Danish artist who has been painting since his youth, however it was not always his primary career path. Following his service in the Danish Air Force, Olsen worked in the telecommunications business for more than 20 years. He recently left a position as CEO of a successful company that he helped to develop. This dramatic change in direction from the corporate world to art has given a new boost of inspiration to his work. Through his compositions, he seeks to explore his personal state of mind in search of new artistic expressions. He utilizes a variety of techniques in oil & acrylic, including brushes, palette knives, and spray paint. These experimental combinations inspire his continued exploration, testing the limits of light and dark, and bright colored abstraction.
