Julian Brown British, b. 1974

Julian Brown was born in Dorset in 1974 and now lives and works in London. Julian trained at The Royal Academy Schools, Liverpool John Moores University and Bournemouth & Poole college of Art and Design. Selected for the 2016 prestigious John Moore's Painting Prize.


Julian describes his work as, “very heavily influenced by nostalgic visions of the 1980’s and the folk art from my Polish heritage. Both of these worlds have a handmade geometric quality that has a playful and primitive relevance to the world we now live in.” In 2012, Brown was selected for the Marmite Painting Prize and Emergancy5, as well as shows at The Royal Academy Main Galleries, Royal Academy Sackler Gallery & Schools, The Angus Hughes Gallery London, The Aspex Gallery Portsmouth, Foster Art London, The Big Egg Hunt and the Paton Gallery London.
