Julien Jaca

Julien Jaca is a mixed media artist based in France. Largely inspired by Afro-American artists from the post-slavery era like Sam Doyle and Williams L. Hawkins, as well as renowned French masters like Henri Matisse and Paul Gauguin, Jaca does not limit himself to painting what he sees. He paints a profound portrait of his favorite people and objects to create iconic images against haloing electrical backgrounds—neither outdated, nor futuristic.
