Oliver Boulton (b. 1991, Portsmouth, UK) is an artist and designer working between Paris and London. He is focused on the development of printed matter for individuals and organisations.

Boulton’s practice explores the production of language in the built environment through analogies of wayfinding, traffic regulation, punctuation, architecture and sculpture. He reveals ways in which language, reasoning, the organisation of public space and social conduct are interrelated and inform one another. Boulton’s work culminates in both made and found sculptural typographies, publications and writing. Turning street furniture into punctuation, the metric system modelled as an alphabet and handrails turned into sensuous typographic limbs.
