Julian ARNAUD was born in 1978 in La Baule, Frande at the edge of the Atlantic. This self-taught painter and sculptor developed a passion for architecture, Bauhaus, and De Stijl art movements as from the age of 15. He began painting under the influence of those he admired, such as Piet Mondrian and Le Corbusier; then quickly he discovered the works of Mark Rothko and Pierre Soulages, as well as those of Constantin Brancusi. Artists who fascinate him by the apparent simplicity of their achievements, both in the choice of shapes, colors, as proportions.

He thus naturally creates his universe, marked by a single will: aesthetics.

Considering art as a research laboratory, and setting no boundaries in the use of materials, he plays with them by adapting to the constraints they impose on him. It is a lifelong learning process that allows him to develop new processes that he is constantly improving.

For more than 20 years, he will produce works without ever showing them ... Then in 2016, he finally decides to expose his work and share his passion with the greatest number.
