Olivia Hamza is an animation graduate from Seneca College. She describes her practice as sourcing and collecting a wide range of imagery, figurative and abstract, from high and low culture in order to photobash concept pieces that innovate in design and mood. Making use of photography, painting, 3D modeling and texturing the image mashups communicate visual information pertaining to the concept guidelines. A background in VFX working on films such as Thor: Ragnarok and Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time have shaped the concept artist into a highly creative and productive part of any visionary team. A solid background in anatomical, architectural and mechanical drawing have also granted her many opportunities exhibiting conceptual Fine Art with organizations such as Pictoplasma for their exhibit “Character Compendium” at the Museum de Arte Marco, Mexico and galleries across Europe. As well Olivia has exhibited at various art, comic book and gaming conventions and festivals.
