What is the central point of our passion today? What will fuel our choices? Will we succumb to the hypnotic ease of technology and be moved by society through the prism of our telephone or return to a more immediate social trance state by letting ourselves be carried away by the essence of reality, of dance and real matter? This is what the work questions.
Lyon, France, 1996. Artist, Painter.
Julian Semiao is an artist-painter born in Lyon in 1996. He graduated from the University of Saint-Etienne with a degree in plastic arts and then obtained a master’s degree in contemporary painting from the Parisian university Panthéon Sorbonne. He currently lives in Paris where he works and exhibits regularly. He has always been fascinated by art and is quickly drawn to the colour and artistic spirit of the medium of painting. Influenced as much by the strength of art brut as by the vitality of Neo-Expressionism and free figuration, he draws his inspiration from a spontaneous and committed Pop Art.
