Olicorno is a self-taught performance artist and contemporary painter from Saguenay, Quebec, Canada. He completed a Bachelor Degree of Business Administration from HEC Montreal in 2012. He then accumulated some professional experience in an art gallery and a music label. He launched as a full-time artist in 2013, following the success of his first performative painting series "Beauty Is What You See".
In September 2013, Olicorno stands out in Quebec media with an 8 days performance work, walking self-sufficiently the 480 km separating the residence of his parents in Jonquière from the Place des Arts in Montreal. The work named "#GloryRoad" was broadcasted on social medias in the manner of a self-documented reality TV.
Since then, Olicorno has performed several other performance series in Montreal, Winnipeg, New York City, and Barcelona. He has performed at various events including TEDx Montréal and La Relève Sympose, at Le Centre National D’Exposition de Jonquière.
His visual work is in many private residences throughout Canada and is in public collections including Arthotèque (Montréal), La Maison des Artistes Francophone de Winnipeg, Tremblant (Mont-Tremblant) and HEC Montreal.
Olicorno works and lives in Montreal since 2009. He works mainly painting, installation art and performance art. Also a pianist and composer, his multidisciplinary work often uses his compositions in the making of art videos or video documentation.
Ambition, symbolism, science, body knowledge, sensory experimentation, and philosophical questioning are recurring themes in his work.
