Julien Pacaud is a French artist and illustrator, living and working in Paris. Julien creates mesmerising fictional spaces that welcome the viewer with a stirring clash of the strange and the familiar. Trained in cinematography, Pacaud is heavily influenced by the enormous back catalague of images from film and television – which he routinely raids for his own collage-style compositions. He concentrates particularly on “retro” visuals from the 1900s to the 1970s, and this, in addition to a great fondness for Magritte and a strong taste for the geometric, produces scenes and environments that playfully evoke the fascinating mythology of a not-too-distant future. Julien create images freelance and is represented in France by Talkie Walkie agency.
