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.

<p>Despite her oh so cute face and big brown eyes, this pooch supplements her dried food diet with cold sprouts, pulses and beans, hence her back end is currently possessed by The Dark Lord Baphomet. My eyes are burning. <br/></p>

Ideal for transporting things from A to B, carrying cat treats and keeping shopping and cigarettes in; while popping into your favourite licensed establishment for a few very strong large alcoholic libations before embarking on the soul crushing commute home or to work.
Alternatively it can be used for shoplifting some souvenir ashtrays from Buckingham Palace and thereby sticking it to the ‘Man’.
