The often-heard advice to leave the past behind is called into question by artist Olav van Lede. He doubts that is always the right way to go. Indeed, the past is home to countless unique and valuable moments, filled with learning moments, nostalgia and renewal. Van Lede focuses his work on historical documents and subjects, which he connects with vivid icons or objects. He explores various themes, including space travel, war, strategy, culinary traditions and nostalgia. For him, the creative process begins far outside his studio, where he seeks out historical sources from collectors, antique dealers and museums. In this way, Olav brings remarkable, moving and sometimes confronting facts and moments from the past back into focus, resulting in artworks that are both beautiful and meaningful.

Olav van Lede saw the light of day on June 28, 1976, in Montreal, Canada. After wandering through Belgium, England and France, he landed in Amsterdam at the beginning of the 21st century, where he moved into an old studio in the Oud Zuid district of the city. Here he lived for many years as he developed himself and followed his artistic path, inspired by big names such as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol. During this period his first works were created, which soon found their way into various homes and offices.

An artist and designer in one, Olav, brimming with ideas, launched his own interior design line in the following years, featuring small furniture, lighting and accessories. All imbued with a touch of humor and designed with the motto “a smile in the mind,” under his own label and management. But in early 2022, it started itching again and Olav decided to return to his original passion. He moved back into a studio and focused entirely on his art.

Since 2022, Olav has received several awards with his innovative, recognizable and original style. His work is now represented by several renowned galleries and is in demand by art lovers worldwide.
