If you’ve landed on Grateful Grapefruit, I assume you have heard the name or seen the work of visual agent provocateur Erwin Olaf on multiple occasions.
Having made that clear, we can move to the actual part of this post that doesn’t require many words. I have a very close connection to Mr. Olaf’s art since my childhood. You can say that this man has played a great role in the forming process of my sexuality. Now, talking about his art wouldn’t do much. You just have to watch it.
And for you, lost souls, here is a brief introduction to the Dutch multitalent:
Erwin Olaf is most famous for his commercial and personal work. He has been commissioned to photograph advertising campaigns for large international companies such as Levi’s, Microsoft and Nokia. Some of his most famous photographic series include “Grief”, “Rain”, and “Royal Blood”. Never one to shy away from controversy, Olaf’s work is often daring and provocative. Erwin Olaf has showm his work in galleries and museums all around the world as for example at Flatland Gallery, Utrecht ; Hasted Hunt, New York; Galerie Magda Danysz, Paris; Gallery Espacio Minimo, Madrid ; B&D Gallery, Milan ; Miller Gallery, New York Crown Gallery, Brussels ; Reflex Gallery, Amsterdam etc.
