While charcoal and paints are his main tools for execution, he also experiments with ink and graphite. The images that follow express Julian's love for monochromatic blacks and whites.


With plans of attending an art academy to further his drawing and painting abilities, Julian aspires to paint and compose pieces influenced by the works of artists like William Bouguereau and Caravaggio. He looks to old masters for both inspiration and motivation.

Recently, Julian has been posting his artwork to a variety of websites, like Instagram and Facebook.
