Julian is an artist-scientist who takes molecular biology out of its normal domain of textbooks and concepts and brings it to life in a creative way. He uses images of graffiti to represent the cell and its vitality. He is inspired by the graffiti he sees as he jogs along London’s waterways visiting art galleries on his regular “gallery runs”. Julian studied fine art at Goldsmiths and St Martins after having studied Science at Oxford. He explores abstraction in painting using processes based on chance. The paintings are informed by art history allowing the images to be read as depictions of nature, albeit unfamiliar ones.
