Olivier van Breugel (1989) is a Dutch artist working and living in Amsterdam. He often collaborates with Simone Mudde.

In 2011 Olivier received his Bachelors Degree in Photography at AKV | Sint Joost, Breda. During his studies he went on a six month erasmus exchange at the Kunsthøgskolen in Bergen (KHiB), Norway.

The collaboration with Simone started organically during a trip to Tokyo in 2012 while they were working on McHotel. They both fulfil different roles in this collaboration. Simone quickly forms ideas and is very associative, where Olivier has a more analytical approach. These two differing characteristics make their projects diverse. By focussing their camera on small stories they show bigger phenomena. The final presentation form is just as important as the pictures.

Olivier & Simone finished a new video project called Mono Men, shot in Tokyo. Mono Men was on show at Breda Photo and will be on show again at Art Rotterdam, at Mondriaan Fonds' Prospects & Concepts show. Both Olivier & Simone recently received a 'Werkbijdrage Jong Talent' from The Mondriaan Foundation. Simone will be following a Masters course at Royal College of Art (RCA) in London starting this september, while Olivier will work from Amsterdam. For the Project Mono Men Olivier & Simone are working together with Paradox.
