Jean Jullien is an artist and illustrator living and working in London. A Royal College of Art MA graduate, Jullien has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting artists working in London today.
La Plage builds upon Jullien’s recent London exhibitions Allo? at Kemistry Gallery and at Pick Me Up, Somerset House, in presenting sharp-witted visual puns that explore human interaction and social behaviours - in this case, at the Beach.
The work in La Plage will draw inevitable comparison to the infamous British seaside postcards from the early twentieth century by the likes of Donald McGill; eschewing the overt suggestiveness, and replacing it with a more subtle, intelligent humour - made possible by Jullien’s outstanding understanding of composition.
La Plage will present a series of limited-edition prints, which will be available bespoke-framed at Beach London. There will also be a very limited release of a product, designed by Jean and produced by Beach, that will be available on a first-come, first-served basis on the opening night.
Beach London, 20 Cheshire Street, London, E2 6EH.
