Artist member since 2019
Julien Poublanc (https://poublanc.wixsite.com/art ) is a self taught artist who grew up in France and moved to Toronto in 2003. The inspiration for his abstract paintings comes from a desire to experiment with new processes. Leaving room for improvisation, these processes are revealed on the canvas. Using strong colors and textures, energetic and gestural lines, he attempts to evoke a spontaneous and playful feeling in the viewer. His recent works explore the juxtaposition of photo collages, paint and carving. Those collages use disregarded photos as a source of raw material where figurative elements can be extracted and re-organized into an abstract view.
