Tea Party


To celebrate the end, and the success of AIR SHOW we are inviting you to a closing tea party on the 1st May from 3 to 4pm. It's been amazing so far, with over half the pieces sold. So, this really is your last chance to have a look around, p-pick up a penguin… and p-possibly a p-picture! Julia's work has exceeded expectations, and has proved phenomenally successful for both collectors and galleries. Julia has now been invited to participate in an installation in Whitechapel and to exhibit at a pop-up gallery in Clerkenwell during May; her collection will later be moved to the Paço Imperial Museum of Modern Art in Rio in September; and in December to the Home from Home Gallery, Munich. Julia's canvases are immense, not only in size, but in concept. Julia never really defines the subject, but that is absolutely fine, it just adds to the ambiguity and intrigue. You will find yourself staring at them for a long while and on the way home still wondering what you just saw. Julia's art captures a beauty that is as unconventional as it is stunning. Julia works in acrylic, ink and charcoal and often uses papers and fabrics containing some printed or embossed pattern or text; it could be bed-clothes, toilet paper, textured building timber or upholstery fabric; anything that comes with a built-in story which could either be developed or partially erased. Julia's main focus is the composition of an image and certainly not the details. Julia Miranda was born in the UK and lived with her English mother and Brazilian father in Brazil until she was five. Since then she has lived in Camden Town, North London. Although now settled in London her love and passion for Brazil is obvious. Julia studied Graphic Design at Brighton University and went on to work as an art director producing films with a strong social and historical value - Art in the National Gallery, Art at the Tate, and Art Store. In 2005 her work on Lad's Army was short listed for a BAFTA. Her mother Liz Miranda, a local painter, was until recently Head of Art at a secondary school, and was pivotal in nurturing Julia's talent. Her father, Luiz Aquila, is one of the most respected Brazilian artists of his generation. Julia's rich artistic heritage and instinctive talent perpetuates the timeless conundrum- nature vs. nurture.
