We're delighted to have Olivier Jamin support our trail and paint a guide dog sculpture.

About Olivier

Olivier Jamin is a Birmingham-based, award-winning, contemporary Deaf artist specialising in hand-drawn multi-coloured arts, video, photography, and retail design.

He has contributed to successful sculpture trails, creating eye-catching artwork for St Barnabas ‘Love, love, love Lincolnshire’, the Royal Highland Show, ‘James and the Golden Fleece’, Runaway Reindeer ‘Silvanus’ and Puffin Galore! ‘Nuffin for the Puffin’. He has created many commissioned artworks, such as fabric banners for exhibitions and community engagement activities. For example, the Ironbridge Gorge Museum, Roundhouse Birmingham, Victoria Leeds, Derby Signfest, Wolverhampton Arts Gallery, ASLI and Midlands Arts Centre.

Olivier is constantly experimenting, combining the effects of colours and patterns, raising people’s imagination and awareness, and continuing as a role model by overcoming challenges and finding space to share experiences for people to learn from and be inspired by. Collaborating with charities, museums/galleries and the private sector, Olivier leads British Sign Language exhibition tours, art workshops, and installations, and he also creates videos in BSL with subtitles and voice-over. He also offers talks as a guest speaker and specialist guidance in an access advisory role.
