Building art for a shoe store in Berlin. ( My first paid job at the age of 12 ) ;-)

A passion for creativity

Summing up Oliver Krays fields of interest is a challenge - even for Oliver himself. Although he describes himself as an artist and designer, his work spans a much larger field than his job description.

His talent to interpret every project and turn it into a unique "Oliver Kray product", is what makes this young man a very special figure in the art and design world.

No matter what project Oliver is working on today, his born passion for color his motor, driving him to continue creating. 

Egal in welchem Bereich Oliver Kray heute tätig ist, seine Energie und sein Motor stammen stets aus seiner angeborenen Passion für Farben und dem Drang Neues zu schaffen.
