About

I enjoy making art for a living.

I am a painter. I make art for a living.

I have enjoyed living and working as a full-time painter in New York City for over 15 years.

I feel everyone is creative, I can see it in the clothes people choose, the way homes are decorated and I paint in order to inspire people to unlock their creativity. I wake up seven days a week and go into my studio excited to created new works and inspire people in new ways through hand painted works on paper, jewelry, shirts, scarves and even wine.

My work largely concentrates on the ‘singular’ –an animal, a flower, a building, an object – where the noise of a detailed background or other subject matter has been removed.

I like to leave room for the viewer and prefer not to attach images to a higher power, place or time. I prefer the painting to be about one ‘thing’ … it’s a restraint, or constraint or a rule, let’s say, and within those boundaries the image takes on a different or greater meaning, even.

I have recreated a large number of my paintings as limited edition works on paper, each of which I individually hand paint, number and sign on high quality ‘Arches’ paper.
Keeping within the ‘artist as jeweller’ tradition, I have also re-imagined and produced a selection of my painting images as silver and gold fine jewelry.

In 2010 I founded Jason Oliva [Wine], an ongoing collaboration with South African winemaker Dirk Roos to produce a yearly, private label, limited-edition wine. And in 2011, in collaboration with NYC based art fabricator Karen Atta, I produced my first sculpture ‘Lion’.

In addition I have been honored to be elected to the Etsy Seller Advisory board for 2016.

My work can be found in public and private collections worldwide and is on permanent display at New York Vintners, 21 Warren St. New York, NY.

AN A TO Z COLORING BOOK FOR EVERYONE by Jason Oliva
( Published in 2015)

As far back as 2010, I kept in my studio black and white paper copies of some of the images from my sold paintings - such as Gorilla, Lion and Rose - along with a few boxes of crayons, just incase any of the collectors or visitors who came by brought their children along. It was a way of keeping everyone happy: the adults would enjoy some conversation and wine while the children enjoyed some coloring in.

Time and again the adults would join in with the coloring and it would remind them how much they used to enjoy it when they were younger. So it was inevitable perhaps that at some point I would publish a coloring book for children and adults alike.

It is my fondest hope that you spend many a relaxing time coloring in the images within this book.

Feel free to send me pictures of your finished masterpieces!

Frequently asked questions

What are the frame measurements of the works on paper? are they really hand painted?

-Small Works on Paper Frame Size are 19.25 Inches x 15.25 Inches
-Medium Works on Paper Frame Size are 34 Inches x 26 Inches
- Large Works on Paper Frame Size vary (please see individual listings)

I hand paint every work on paper myself on Arches paper. In addition use the paint i used from the original painting brushes and ink. There are no mechanical processes used like digital printing or silk screening.

I know! its crazy hand painting thousands of works on paper but I am not a fan of mechanical prints and I love doing the work and how they look.

Can you Gift Wrap? Add a Card? Can I make a special delivery request?

- Yes...Yes...Yes and Yes within reason..although I have delivered artwork to honeymoon suites in the past so dont be shy..just ask!

Can I choose my own colors for a work on paper?

-I am sorry I dont do color variations of the works on paper but I do offer them in their original coloring from the sold painting they were inspired from along with grey tone and black and white. So there are three to choose from!

Can you paint a background color for me on a work on paper... please?
-I am sorry I dont offer the works on paper with color backgrounds. The reason is that I want to keep the integrity of the original painting intact for the collector who owns the painting the work on paper is derived from. It also makes the works on paper unique to the original painting.

Can I request a specific number in the edition of the work on paper I am buying?

I am sorry I dont offer specific numbers but I do offer the lowest number in the edition available at the time of purchase. I think that's even better.

I am a celebrated Art dealer and/or a luxury retailer and would like to resell your art work/Jewelry/coloring book/Shirts and cards do you offer wholesale pricing?

Yes! please contact me even if you are or are not Larry Gaggosian or Hermes I would love to work with you no matter what size you are operating at even if you are outside the United States. Contact me and I can provide you with a line sheet.

Commissioned Paintings start at $3800
Feel free to contact me or drop by the studio and we can discuss things in further detail.

Is it true you produce a wine in South Africa on an annual basis that features your art work? How can I get my hands on some bottles?

Yes this is true! We are working on our third vintage that will have my Octopus on the label! Email me (JasonOliva@gmail.com) for availability and to add yourself to the wine allocation list.

Do you really offer free shipping anywhere in the world? Really?

Yes really! My goal is to sell art in all 50 states and 196 countries and I am not going to let something like additional shipping costs get in my way!
