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

One of my bags being modeled by one of my muckers, he’s a bit of a diva. 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’.www.julianquaye.co.ukSPECIAL OFFERS AVAILABLE!
