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.

WOMBLING FREE! (The Wombles were a 1970s British children’s TV show about  these creatures which lived beneath Wimbledon Common and collected and recycled people’s rubbish or trash as our cousins across the Atlantic refer to it.

<p>Pencil study ‘An Inspector calls’<br/>
<a href="http://www.julianquaye.co.uk" target="_blank">www.julianquaye.co.uk</a><br/>
While currently developing Inspector Aberline’s backstory I’ve always imagined him to have the voice of either Sean Bean, Ray Winstone or Idris Elba after developing a raging 20 a day Capstan Full Strength no filter habit to add extra throaty growl. (And possibly Emphysema) <br/>
Don’t smoke kids, it’s not cool and it’s not clever, unless you happen to be Humphrey Bogart and he’s no longer with us.<br/>
No wonder I can’t sleep. <br/>
