If captivating sculptures is what tickles your fancy, Marco Olivier’s grand designs would be well up your alley. From someone who began his career in Aircraft Engineering, then moved into extravagant furniture design, to eventually venturing into professional golfing, it is no surprise that what he would explore next would be just as intriguing.

After matriculating from the acclaimed Pretoria Boys’ High and attaining many accolades in his early adult life, Marco’s eagerness to pursue his lifelong dream in the art industry pushed him to start his first bronze foundry in Cape Town in 2014. Fast-forward to 2017, where he started his first line and showcased one of his earliest pieces.

Despite the expense of taking on such grand designs, the positive reception from those who love his art the most, motivates him to keep finding ways to make them sustainable and maintain longevity in the business.

“We needed a partner that is able to keep up, and we looked around and it looked like Capitec was a good option”, explains Marco.
