Weekend outing

Last weekend myself and my little family went on a trip down to Canterbury to spend a splendid few days with Julien and Laura, some friends of ours.
Julien is one of those immensely talented artists who simply not enough people know about!
His technical ability with oil paint is outrageous and his choice of subject matter is diverse and surreal.

He has shown all over the UK but not managed to get a foothold in the USA for some reason.
I suggest some of you gallery owners out there invite him into a few of your joint shows soon and see the pieces fly off the walls.

I took a few snaps of his latest series of works whilst I was there.

I do apologise for the low quality of the photos and the iffy reflections. I am sure poor Julien will be shaking his head in disgust at the terrible repros.. (Though to be honest I don’t think any photo can really capture the vibrancy and translucent element of his work.)

Sorry I am not sure what this series is called. But they all have elements of classic hotrod cars, Atomic blasts and Outer Limits characters…

And here are a couple of paintings from last year. His Mechanamorphism series.

Julien has a couple of pieces in the upcomingĀ  show “Society of Art of Imagination” at La Galleria, Pall Mall, 30 Royal Opera Arcade, London SW1,
from the 19th-24th April. (Nearest tube – Charring Cross/Piccadilly Circus.)

You can see more of his amazing work (and of course buy stuff direct from him) on his website : Baroque Designs
