The Aviator

The Aviator, mixed media on canvas by Julian Quaye

Introduction

Julian Quaye's paintings illustrate his love of ironic juxtaposition with a touch of steam punk sensibility and a huge dose of kitsch.



His Work

He is currently working on brief character biographies which will bind them into a larger narrative. 
He describes himself as the bastard great great grandson of Beatrix Potter.  

The Aviator

 A typical example of his work is 'The Aviator': a penguin in early period pilot's uniform at the North Pole. Or to put it another way, a bird that can't fly dressed in flying kit and standing at the wrong end of the world.

To note

Within three months of exhibiting for the first time he was picked up to be included in a contemporary urban auction alongside Damian Hirst and Banksy by Dreweatts in summer 2012.

His work for this exhibition takes a tangent into pop art rather than his intricate mixed media work. Of the change he said ‘I wanted to do something looser, more fun, not as tight’.

Me, dropping off my painting ‘Gabriel’ to 212 Productions for essential photography and reproduction work in a not too contrived manner.
Man dem, just thought I’d chuck in a little 'yoot’ urban speak to prove I’m still hip and down with the kids, despite going grey and muttering something about a 'bum cloth’.
