Graphic designer, illustrator, graduate from the Esag Penninghen, Olivier Dauger has been drawing for over twenty years for press, communication, and advertising.

Fan of the ligne claire and of the Franco-Belgian school, he is fond of the 1930’s-40’s (history, design, architecture… and aviation).
He is an ardent admirer of the work of E.P. Jacob, Chaland, Serge Clerc. From 2006 to 2011, his series Ciel en ruine (sky in ruins) sets him as one of the best aeronautical graphic novels artist.

The series Ciel de Guerre, followed by the biography of Hélène Boucher (written by Didier Quella-Guyot) confirmed his talent. His mastering of the aviation theme leads him to be nominated official “Peintre de l’Air et de l’Espace” in 2019.

A Jack of all trades, he also dived into the investigations of Miss Marple and into a political polar titled Les Frères Nowak.
