ABOUT JEAN JULLIEN
Born in Nantes and now working from his studio in Paris, Jean Jullien has become a worldwide phenomenon with a multi-disciplinary practise which adapts brilliantly to graphic design, illustration and fine art applications. He works in the 2-dimensional realm with drawings, paintings and illustrations; in the 3-dimensional with sculptures, installations and wittily constructed fold out children's books; and in 4-dimensions by collaborating with his brother on animated short films. You are as likely to find his work in magazines, ranging from National Geographic to The New Yorker, as you are in museums and galleries in London, LA, New York, San Francisco, Berlin, Tokyo and beyond!
