Julien Durix is a Vichyssois painter born in 1991. Cradled since his childhood in an artistic environment, he has devoted himself fully to painting since 2012. After two years of art study, he quickly embarked on a practice more personal, which features protagonists from his childhood. Iconic characters have always rubbed shoulders with his paintings. He paints as he breathes, and he invites us to join him in this world full of colors where he gives free rein to his overflowing imagination.
Each work that Durix paints tells us a story: Tintin surprised to find his Snowy transformed into a balloon, Mickey and Minnie kissing passionately in Times Square as well as Superman and Batman challenging each other to know which one will win the heart of a child. … Julien Durix has fun mixing eras as well as characters, to better make us dream and plunge us into his universe where young and old meet. The acrylic paintings of this artist, sketched with meticulousness, do not involve collage or printing. The precision of his touch brings out the colors with vivacity and underlines the features of the figures.
At only 28 years old, he demonstrates an inexhaustible inspiration, a technique close to perfection and a real talent, already recognized. He thus imposes himself in the landscape of contemporary art as a worthy heir to Pop Art.
