Hi I’m Oliver Demuth,
I’m a scientific illustrator, paleoartist and research technician at The Royal Veterinary College (RVC). I have a BA from the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), where I studied Scientific Visualization, and I will graduate ‘with Distinction’ from the Master of Science in Palaeobiology programme at the University of Bristol in February. I draw and paint dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals for publications and work on biomechanics and 3D computional modelling.
For commissions please contact me here.
