About Frank Oliva
Frank Oliva lives in Hawaii. He draws a great deal of inspiration for his paintings from what he sees in these beautiful islands, particularly the ocean and the lush Hawaiian vegetation.

In 2007, he visited Australia and discovered a whole new energy and art. With the aboriginal paintings, he incorporates an instinctive gift for color with aboriginal designs and patterns. His aboriginal series of paintings on furniture and canvas is unique. Hundreds of bursting color "dots" bubble on the surface, and yet the effect evokes peace and a harmony attuned with nature and with the spirit of the aboriginal world

Frank Oliva is a member of the Association of Hawaii Artists and the Windward Artists Guild. His paintings have been included in several galleries on Oahu. He paints with acrylics on canvas, handmade paper and wood. His work often includes "series": works in which a single subject is represented in different arrangements and different perspectives.

About the Artist...

Frank Oliva paints mainly in acrylics. He has participated in many Hawaiian arts' shows and his paintings are in many "mainland collections". He recently learned that his painting "Aboriginal Paths" was accepted by the Honolulu Academy of Arts for the 2009 Artists of Hawaii juried art exhibition opening in May.

Frank has been painting for 25 years. His early works include fanciful and beautiful painted furniture. Seven years ago, Frank started painting canvases using acrylics. He enjoys the very special experience of painting in Hawaii and is inspired by the dynamic natural beauty, the sea, volcanoes and flora of Hawaii.

Hundreds of bursting color "dots" bubble on the surface, and yet the effect evokes peace and a harmony attuned with nature and with the spirit of the aboriginal world. Frank's work, whether botanicals, landscapes or aboriginal "tracks" reveal his absolute gift of color.

Every piece is an original; every piece is celebration of color!

Today, Frank continues to paint on canvas, paper, and furniture. He has produced original painted books and accepts commissions for one-of-a-kind furniture. In addition to his painted canvases, Frank has painted murals for homes and transformed wooden doors into pictures of gardens and waterfalls.
