Julien Andrieu was born in France in 1979 and grew up in Corsica, a small French Island in the Mediterranean Sea. Born into a family of artists, his interest in art, photography, painting and sculpture began at an early age. In 1996, he start the Audio Visual School in Toulouse, France and in 2003, he went to the art school Villa Arson in Nice, France for 4 years, and was an  artist assistant there. He worked with his friend David Raffini on various projects, and some of them went to the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. ( "expanded crash", palais de Tokyo

Since moving to New York City 8 months ago, Julien’s work has been featured in two exhibits – one at a gallery in Brooklyn and then at the Baboo Gallery in Chelsea for one month. Julien has also been a guest lecturer at the Friends School in Manhattan for several high school photography classes, and will soon be featured on NBC-New York. Future showings of his work are planned for several different exhibits throughout Summer 2010, including at the Roho Gallery in Cincinnati, OH.


Of his photographs, Julien says: “Energy and spirituality are concepts that I have been interested in and have reflected upon since my teenage years. Since then, I have taken the time to continually pursue personal and diverse research on these topics.”


Building on this research and through multiple experiments, he began focusing on a technique that uses light sources to create images. This technique, called “light painting,” was used in the 1950s by great masters such as Picasso and Man Ray in some of their pictures. Just as the painter uses a full range of colors and brushes to bring his paintings to life, Julien produces works with light sources of a variety of sizes, shapes and color bands. The photographs you see have captured what was created in that particular moment; no image has been manipulated with computer software. And the works seem to speak for themselves.
