Julian Clavijo is an internationally renowned artist, born in Colombia, living and working in Melbourne since 2008. A painter and sculptor since a very early age, Julian is interested in urban space transformation and his work, from large public installations to intimate portraits, reflects a keen eye for colour, pattern and realism. Currently his studio practice is based on capturing the human face of transnational conflict around the world, focussing on vulnerable civilian populations and the innocence of children in war, translating this into the empathetic reflection of joyful childhood as it should be.
His peculiar quasi-photorealistic style is widely recognised for his detailed large oil painting portraits of children, engaging the viewer in an introspective, emotional and reflective manner depicting the innocence of his subject matter.
