Julian Brown


 

The geo-abstract paintings of Julian Brown are heavily influenced by nostalgic visions that entangle a colourful 1980s aesthetic, and the folk art of his mother’s Polish heritage. He describes the ‘handmade geometric quality’ of these influences as having ‘a playful and primitive relevance to the world we now live in’.

“Embedded deep into my psyche is not only a synthesis of Western painting styles, but also a continuation of a rich cultural tradition that animates this fairy tale of abstract thought.”
