Olympio hails from Togo, West Africa, and grew up in a large family of eight children. He has been honing his artistic skills since creating his earliest sculptures from building scraps. Olympio's artistic achievements have garnered attention across Togo and neighboring countries, with exhibitions at esteemed venues such as the Lomé City Art Center and the luxury Hotel Sarakawa. In 2001, Olympio took a bold step by leaving his African home to showcase and sell his works in the artistic hub of Paris. Eventually, the artist found a new home in the United States in 2003, relocating to New York and Los Angeles.
Olympio's work has been exhibited around the world at museums including the Latino Art Museum in Pomona, CA; Chiba City Museum of Art in Chiba, Japan; and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art in Tokyo, Japan. His work has been exhibited at Art Basel Miami, where in 2018 he was ranked one of the Top 10 Artists at Red Dot Art Basel Miami. He was one of sixty people from across the world selected to exhibit in “Out of the Fire,” the 14th edition of the Dakar Biennale in 2022, one of Africa’s oldest and largest exhibitions of contemporary art in Dakar, Senegal. He has also been featured in numerous TV appearances, including France 2, TV5Monde, and the BBC.
