Biography from Meibohm Fine Arts, Inc.:
From St-Jacques-de-l'Achigan, Quebec, Canada, Oliver Melancon later moved to the Buffalo, NY area circa 1847. He settled in Sheldon Center, NY, and married Marie-Antoinette (née Renaux) in 1858, and they had eight children.

That same year with Morris Courtney, Oliver had opened an ornamental fresco painting business called Melancon & Courtney, located at the corner of Pearl & Terrace Streets in Buffalo, NY.  They had another division at the corner of Union & William, and they ran the business until circa the early-mid 1860’s.

In 1867, Oliver became part owner of a business called Bottani, Belli & Melancon (for Vitale Bottani & Camillo Belli, fresco painters), located in the Arcade Building, Room 12, which created ornamental paintings and frescoes for local churches, parlors, and theatres. Evidently, the partnership dissolved sometime before 1873, but Oliver continued to have his own ornamental fresco painting & wallpaper business into the 1880’s. It was located at 309 Seneca Street, Buffalo, NY, and was passed down to his son Eugene who was also an artist and fresco painter.

Oliver and Eugene painted frescoes in several churches in the Buffalo area. Oliver died in Buffalo on October 10, 1911.
