Olivier Roubieu

Olivier Roubieu is a French artist based in London. He graduated from an Art College in France. Soon after he left college he created the alias Shiz in 2005. A year later he set up a stall every Saturday for eight months in Portobello market (London), where he sold screen printed T-shirts at first, then custom clothes. Wanting to develop his airbrushing skills he took a class with Simon Murray in Northern Ireland in 2008. A few months later he saw the amazing airbrush skills of Craig Fraser and Mike Lavallee painting live in Las Vegas. Greatly inspired he practiced a lot and improved. After changing his name to Mr Shiz in 2011 and working at it full time he started accumulating bigger jobs and appearances in the press. He is now an international artist and travels often overseas for events, commissions, private parties and custom painting. Nowadays he paints as Olivier Roubieu using mixed-media as a main technique without worrying about “selling out” or “cheating”to achieve speed and accuracy in his artwork.
