After studying at the prestigious Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts of Lyon, France, Olivia Babel made a specialization in Fiber Art at the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-arts of Angers, France.
Specialized in fiber art, she is interested about concepts of territory and cartography.
Olivia Babel also represents territories in all them forms (fertile, arid, stripped by the time...) in order to question our relation to environment. She wants to highlight forgotten territories and to show cartography in an other way.
She is french and has differents origins around the world (France, Portugal, Brazil, Senegal, West Indies...). Because of that, she is open-minded. She shows her vision of the world fed by her origins, travels and cultures.
To create her artworks, she uses a traditional french savoir-faire and wants to highlight handmade work. All her pieces are handmade in her workshop in France.
