Biography – JULIEN MARINETTI
Julien Marinetti is a painter, a sculptor and an engraver, someone creative right down to his fingertips.
He is essentially a visual artist and explores numerous facets of art. Very fond of the Quattrocento, he made his way through the melting-pot of a flamboyant classicism.
Today his work goes back and forth, without getting lost, between neo-cubism and expressionism, showing his famous syncretism of art. His sculptures – “Doggy John”, “Bob” the penguin, teddy, skull, duck and now “Ba” the panda serve as a medium he sculpts for the ultimate goal of painting them. His sense of volume is insolently innate, yet he admits to being “always looking for the absolute architectural composition, balance of shapes, symmetry and harmony” and that – “he doesn’t search likeness but existence”. When he paints, he gives life to his sculptures with rapid sketches, in a profusion of colors both instinctive and brilliantly mastered.
