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>Never underestimate the depths that I will plunge in denigrating myself to shift some products (Heavy weight Gildan cotton quality T-shirts, limited to 50) in the lead up to Christmas. But; as that other rotund chap (not Father Christmas) warbled ‘I won’t do that!’ whatever Order now to avoid disappointment and incredibly enhance your life, improve your standing in the community and amaze your friends or some other twaddle.
When they’re gone they’re gone.
Thank you and good night.

<p>Occasionally, for some paintings, I can’t find the right photo reference for whichever canine or feline I’m going to portray. So from time to time I have to dig out the props and become my subject for the forthcoming painting. This particular pose is for a forthcoming homage to a local bulldog by the name of Winnie. To get some insight into Winnie’s psyche and being a fan of ‘The Method’ school of acting, I ate some stuff out of a bin, peed on a lamp post, defecated in the park (while my erstwhile assistant deposited it in a biodegradable bag) and licked some urine off a nettle.<br/>
As Sir Larry said to Mr Hoffman, There’s got to be an easier way…. Hot water bottle cover models own.

<p>More work on my T-shirt designs and screen printed limited edition fine art prints coming along, just a little more tweaking. By the way, all hand drawn from scratch including font designed by yours truly, incorporating none of that Photoshop tomfoolery. Right, I’m off too shove some sheep into my giant Wicker Man in the back garden. <br/>
