Classical French culture and African art have becomed the opposing poles of her creative imagination.

Back in France she obtained the National Superior Diploma of Plastic expression with distinction in 1983.

Classical French culture and African art have becomed the opposing poles of her creative imagination.

When painting, she responds to an existential necessity.Maguerez always needs references to things corporal.Because " if one can’t feel the body, one should give up making a picture".

"The painting always makes reference to another painting", Maguerez further declared, and this, no doubt, is the most convincing message of a work which inscribes itself in the continuity of the history of art, and even wider history - that of the painter-subject condemned by the urgency of creation, and an "inner necessity".

Olivier Catte was born in 1957, in Normandy, France.

Master of Fine Arts in 1981.

Participation in Contemporary Art Fairs (Nice, London, Chicago, Geneva).
