Oli Epp

Oli Epp (1994) is young, passionate, and on his way up. The half Canadian, half British painter is based in London, where he recently graduated from the City & Guilds of London Art School. He already started gaining recognition while at art school through his posts on Instagram. In 2016, he was featured in a GQ article entitled Early blue chip artists to invest in. According to Epp, this was all due to Instagram, since his website wasn’t even up back then. And the day he graduated from art school, he announced on Instagram that all of his works had been sold, through the hashtag #sold-out. Amidst the madness of the art world jungle, Epp has even already managed to coin a term to describe his work: post-digital pop.


Epp’s paintings interweave topics such as consumerism, digital imagery, and everyday life with a nice sharp dose of humour. His paintings often reveal universally recognisable corporate symbols and brands of mass-produced goods and food (Mc Donald’s, Coca Cola). Epp is inspired by pop art, infusing his works with images from our contemporary consumer landscape and addressing our materialistic society with a sharp, critical sense of humour.
