Oliver Lunn is a London-based collage artist. Taking inspiration from the squiggles of Cy Twombly and the textured paintings of Robert Rauschenberg, Lunn combines found marks and scraps with his own doodles. He typically employs muted colours and faint imagery that aren't always visible on first glance. He invites the viewer to lean in, take a closer look, and enjoy these quiet details lurking in the background.

After completing a BA in Fine Art in 2009, Lunn’s practice has evolved into something increasingly abstract, with his eye drawn to nuances of colour, the potential of torn and cut edges, and how these elements react together within a composition.

In early 2020 the Kanyer Art Collection - an international collage collection dedicated to collagists from 1980 to present - acquired two mixed media works by Lunn. Currently, he is working on pieces for a group show in London in 2021.
