Being drawn by Olivier was such a magical experience. From the moment I walked in his studio, I felt totally comfortable, and it seemed like time had stopped. We got to know each other a bit over tea before talking about what colors and poses we wanted to use, and throughout the session and during the breaks in posing we had meaningful conversations. I never felt rushed, but the time flew by, and I was blown away by his artistry when I finally saw myself on paper. This is definitely a can't-miss experience, and I wish I could do it a hundred more times!
10/10 recommend. I adore the resulting artwork my partner and myself, and Olivier was very professional and kind. I grew up in a religious community in which women’s bodies are seen as something to be covered to maintain the comfort of men, so the experience of posing nude for a portrait felt especially liberating. It is something special to acknowledge the value and beauty of one’s body in this kind of an experience.
My husband and I were both a little apprehensive at first, but we were so comfortable by the end that we both fell asleep in our poses! It was a truly beautiful experience. Olivier puts so much care and detail into the drawings and helps you feel as at ease as possible. The experience itself was worth the money, but now we have a drawing to treasure forever en plus!
I was nervous about doing this but Olivier made this way better than I expected. He is very kind, sensitive, and talented. This is a MUST DO in Toulouse. I would rate this a 6 stars if I could.
Mais quelle expérience :-)
Olivier sait nous mettre à laisse car n'oublions pas que l'on doit se déshabiller quand même!
Il n'y a plus qu'à se laisser porter par le moment et savourer la pose. C'est un moment pour soi qu'importe les raisons qui nous ont poussé à le faire.
Le dessin d'Olivier est juste magnifique! Je suis en admiration devant le résultat final après seulement 40mns de pose.
It was so lovely to meet Olivier, he is so warm and kind. The whole process makes you very comfortable and relaxing. It is like a conversation between yourself and your body. Definitely recommend this experience. And the final art is also absolutely stunning.
Expérience offerte à mes parents pour l’anniversaire de ma mère et leurs 30 ans de mariage. Olivier s’est montré très prévenant et agréable, ils ont adoré passer ce moment privilégié dans son atelier ! Merci beaucoup Olivier !
This is a must and worth a trip to Toulouse. Oliver is kind, welcoming and so very talented! He drew my husband and I, catching our expressions of love and laughter for and with one another. This was a unique, fun, intimate and exciting experience and I highly recommend!
Superbe moment en amoureux! Première expérience pour tous les deux et agréablement surpris. Nerveux au départ, Olivier a su nous mettre très rapidement a l’aise par sa gentillesse et avec des petites blagues bien choisi :D
Gentil, rassurant, captivant et très talentueux, je recommande a 100%
Moment intense avec mon chéri, portrait face a face , incroyablement ressemblant, semblable à une photo.
N’hésitez pas pas à vivre cette expérience hors du commun.
Merci beaucoup pour ce moment unique!
Acceuil impeccable Olivier sait mettre a l aise et est très professionnel . Résultat bluffant je ne regrette pas du tout . Je recommande vraiment .
Encore merci Olivier
J’ai vécu ce moment comme un vrai cadeau ! Un cadeau hors du commun, que l’on se fait et qui est rare.
Olivier est très agréable et l’écouter parler de peinture était enrichissant. Il a pris du temps, c’est un vrai professionnel avec une belle sensibilité .
Je suis enchanté du portait qu’il a fait de moi.
À refaire ou à découvrir pour la 1ère fois !
Great experience, comfortable, and the host is quite hospitable. Olivier makes sure you're comfortable and is open to suggestions on the final drawing. I'd do it again, and recommend it.
This was an empowering experience. I highly recommend for anyone wanting to explore their sense of self. Olivier is very professional and helped find a pose that was right for me. The drawing is fantastic.
Super expérience ! Olivier prend le temps de nous expliquer comment ça va se passer, et nous aide à trouver une jolie pose qui nous convienne, il est super sympa et vraiment talentueux !
Je renouvellerai très certainement l’expérience !
Une très belle expérience. Olivier est un hôte attentionné, rassurant, il prend le temps qu'il faut. Le dessin est sublime, mais le plus important pour moi c'était de bien vivre cette expérience complètement en dehors de ma zone de confort. Olivier a su me mettre à l'aise très rapidement. A refaire.
Olivier est vraiment un hôte très à l’écoute, très accueillant et super sympathique et talentueux ! Expérience très enrichissante et personnelle.
Being drawn by Olivier was an incredible experience. Although I was initially a little bit nervous, he quickly put myself and my partner at ease. Not only was the experience enjoyable but we now have our own piece of artwork that we love. A highlight from our time in France. Would definitely recommend :)
Super expérience ! Bel échange avec Olivier, qui m'a mise à l'aise dès le début. On discute de choses et d'autres, et, en ce qui concerne le dessin, on voit ensemble le choix de la couleur du crayon, le type de dessin (drapé, pour ma part), la pose... Je n'ai pas vu le temps passer et c'est vraiment étonnant de découvrir le résultat à la fin ! Je me suis bien reconnue dans l'attitude, l'expression du visage. Olivier cherche à capter ce qui transparaît à travers la personne. A recommander à 100%!
Olivier is a pro - so talented, hospitable, and a good conversationalist. It was an unforgettable experience in his studio, with a lovely work of art to remember it by.
Oliver made the experience as comfortable as it could have been for me! His work is truly remarkable and he is very talented. Thank you so much Oliver for the drawing, I will cherish it forever.
Fue una experiencia increíble, algo que haces una vez en la vida y tú sabes que recordarás por siempre. Fue único, nuevo y divertido. Recomiendo totalmente la experiencia. Oliver me ayudó a sentirme muy cómoda y todo fue muy natural, además me llevo un lindo retrato que Oliver envolvió prolijamente.
It is really really spichel experience!
And even though it might seem wired one, Oliver somehow manage to make it mantlly exsible for people like me and my GF who have no background in this.
To sum up: highly recommend!
It’s a one in a lifetime experience, although once you try it you’ll want more. Oliver made me feel really special, he was open to questions and he shared some wonderful stories. The painting was magnificent but i didn’t only enjoy the outcome, i indeed enjoyed the experience as a whole. The host makes sure you have the perfect safe and also warm :p space to experiment it.
Offert à un ami : Expérience insolite mais ô combien épanouissante. Olivier nous met à l'aise avec une bienveillance sans bornes et un petit thé thym/gingembre !
Un excellent moment passé avec Olivier. Agréable, prévenant, ses qualités techniques sont à l’égal de sa gentillesse. Et le résultat est sublime et vraiment très ressemblant.
Oliver is an incredible professional who have a big passion about his work. I felt free all the time and my experience was unique! I gave my drawing to my boyfriend and he was impressed,thrilled, happy! Thank you Oliver! You are amazing!
This experience is one of a kind. Olivier is a brilliant painter and makes you feel instantly comfortable with this strange situation. Love the drawing. Would do it again 10/10. Merci Olivier!
Mi dispiace non vivere a Tolosa, cercherei in ogni modo di frequentare Olivier e di poter diventare un suo amico, lo scambio di idee è stato altamente stimolante. Mentre ci ritraeva noi, dall’altra parte della tela, avevamo il raro onore di osservare un artista all’opera, una prospettiva lontana da quella di modelli visti come oggetti passivi.
I was hesitant to book this at first as It was entirely out of my comfort zone, but I am so glad I did. Olivier was fantastic. He was very accommodating leading up to my booking and so welcoming when I arrived. Eased my nerves instantly over a cup of coffee.
Not to mention His talent - which speaks for itself - I love my drawing!
Amazing experience, which we highly recommend. I had booked it as a surprise for my wife and she enjoyed it a lot. Olivier was welcoming and nice host, absolutely helping you feel at ease, even though naked.
Première expérience de dessin nu pour ma part
L'objectif était d'immortaliser ma grossesse et mes 30 ans.
À la vue du dessin, j'ai été très émue
Passé les 10 premières secondes, la gêne à disparu
Olivier was a wonderful host and an incredible artist. We were never nervous, but still Olivier made sure we were comfortable immediately. We had so much fun chatting with him about our travels and experiences with art, it was great. Originally I was going to just have my own piece of art, but as soon as my girlfriend saw how amazing his work was, she asked him to draw her too. So much fun and a beautiful experience in the city of Toulouse!
Highly recommended! Olivier draws with great integrity and makes you feel safe and comfortable - great memories and beautiful gift for you to take home with you.
Olivier was extremely professional, charming, located in a wonderful section of town, and most importantly he is a true artist of the highest caliber. My husband and I could not be more pleased with our experience and the piece of personal artwork we now own. Thank you!
What a freaking cool story to tell your friends and family (and coworkers if you're bold enough). Olivier is so welcoming and calming. We did it as a pair - would recommend it to anyone, any age, any body type, any gender. The first 10 seconds felt 50% strange, and then the rest of the hour is more normal than you could ever imagine. We talked about artist communities, jazz, technology, and more. Do it, do it, do it. And then tell everyone you did it. And then tell them to do it.
Une expérience unique et très sympathique dans l'atelier d'Olivier. À tenter absolument au milieu d'un séjour culturel à Toulouse! N'hésitez pas.
I wasn’t sure I’d be able to go through with it but Oliver made it surprisingly easy. He is very caring and professional. I actually enjoyed the process. The hardest part was walking through the front door.
Olivier is a very friendly and knowledgeable artist. He ensures that you are comfortable and makes you feel at ease, explains the process and options of posing nude. It was an incredible experience, very grateful for the chance to meet with Olivier and take home such a personal souvenir!
It was an enjoyable and eye-opening experience that you could have, Oliver is very personal, making you feel comfortable and posing and in general making the whole environment very pleasant and liberating.
It was my first time ever posing for a drawing and it really made me feel more in touch with myself and how people see me as compared to how I see myself.
Overall, it was such a pleasant experience with Oliver and I would highly recommend everyone to try it!
This was a once in a lifetime experience...if you ever get the chance. Olivier made me feel very comfortable and told me what was expected. I’m very please with the results and will be hanging it on my wall. I recommend this experience if you want to try something new and go home with a piece of art!
Amazing experience. I'm so happy to have had the courage to do this! The picture is beautiful and i felt so comfortable throughout the whole thing. Olivier is amazing at what he does.
A great experience, one for the bucket list! Olivier was really friendly, genuine and made me feel very comfortable. It was good fun.
A really special and amazing experience. Whatever your motivations are for trying this out, go for it! You will be in good hands with Olivier!
Merci pour cet agréable moment. Ce fût une très belle surprise pour mon mari ! Le résultat a été bluffant . Un accueil bienveillant, chaleureux et professionnel.... On conseille vivement l'expérience ! S. et G. un couple Amoureux.
Superbe expérience avec Olivier ! Il a su me mettre en confiance, disponible, sympa et agréable ! J’ai passé un superbe moment
