Whilst still in the early stages of his career, Christopher Oliver aka Buffalo Tide, has garnered diverse music and art project work and press, including producing music for Kenzo, Hunter and for recently closed iconic Paris store, Colette and presenting a collection of site specific sculptures at London restaurant Blixen. He has released music on cult London label No Pain In Pop as well as his own imprint BLBX; presented a mix for Dazed Digital and had a feature in the NME.
Oliver has also presented his visual art in various group and solo shows, starting with "The Mysterious Function of Belief" at Lewisham Art House in 2014, to the group show 'Focal Point', curated by Marek Wolynski, featuring artists Darek Fortas, Keni Hirasawa & Joanna Sperryn-Jones at Unit24 Gallery, London 2015. His most recent mixed media project was the sound-installation 'Know Your Beholder' at Sutton House in October 2016, which featured as part of the group show "life, death, whatever" curated by Anna Lyons & Louise Winter for the national trust, featuring artists Laura Ford, Claudia Bicen, Philip & Oliver Eglin, French & Mottershead, Chairman Kato, Kate Linforth and Stella Vine.
As a multi-disciplinary artist & musician, Oliver's work encompasses a variety of themes explored in his own dynamic neo-expressionist narrative through both sound installations, mixed media works and paintings . These include takes on his German heritage, catholic symbolism, religious meaning, black metal culture, existentialism, and pop culture aesthetics.
