Autodidact painter from Skate culture, Julien Colombier is inspired by both urban culture and nature. Influenced by Japanese art, Henri Matisse or pop artists such as Keith Haring, Julien Colombier melt acrylic painting and pastel, and like a sculptor playing with light, he creates repetitive patterns and geometric shapes. With his organic and dreamlike artworks, we plunge into a wild and unrealistic nature with deep blacks and bright colors
Born in 1972, Julien Colombier lives and works in Paris.
Julien Colombier is a French artist who traces its artworks with pastel, blending magical and colored jungle and geometric shapes. The organic world that is revealed to us seems woven on specific compositions, whose bright colors and shadows games produce a sensation of temporal suspension, like in a fairy tale. Medium are multiple – an object, a fragment, a wall – can be an excuse to draw spontaneously.
Influenced by the Skate culture, he often left the area of canvas to invade the space, vast and infinite, of everyday life as a playground. He creates works whose background is determined by the form, where the constraint becomes source of inspiration.
He is currently exhibited at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in the group show “Tissus inspirés, Pierre Frey”.
