Oliver earned his BA in Drama and Theatre Arts at Goldsmiths College of London, and his MA in the History of Art from The Courtauld Institute in London. His graduate studies focused on modern art and sculpture from 1860 to 1960, especially the Paris-based Impressionists.  After moving to Paris in 2015 he returned to his theatrical roots by studying at the prestigious École Philippe Gaulier. Oliver's tours draw from his diverse historical and theatrical background, which he tailors to the sensibility of individual visitors.
