Julian Clavijo

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. Clavijo’s studio and mural practice is dedicated to capturing the quintessence of humanity by drawing inspiration from the empathetic qualities of childhood, such as boundless joy, unwavering curiosity and unspoiled innocence. Simultaneously, it delves into the pressing issues of conserving our planet, safeguarding the wonders of nature and preserving the existence of endangered species for both the present generation and the ones yet to come.

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.
