Jean Jullien at l'Imprimerie Paris
A few photos from this cool exhibition in Paris that I visited a few weeks ago. Between the presentation of Jean Jullien's work at Colette and the exhibition at l'Imprimerie, it' was hard to miss JJ's colorful bold illustrations in Paris. If you don't know Jean Jullien: he's a French illustrator that lives between London and NYC. I've been following him on Instagram for a long time and I love his quick and witty reactions on world's events. I also enjoy his use of color (flat bold colors!), the visual jokes and his nerdy characters. His work doesn't need any explanation, it's very recognizable, clever and really crafted by hand. Or as he puts it himself: "In my personal practice, I find excitement through the challenge of practicality and through the use of what I do. ... I do daily visual commentary, communicating about life."
For this exhibition on the theme of "food & drinks" and presented by Fricote and Colette, Jean Jullien designed the packaging of different chocolate products for A la mère de famille, with chocolate spread, lollipops, ice cream and chocolate palets Montmartre:
I was truly impressed by the deep colors and print qualities of the artwork exhibited. It's not easy to see on screen, but the colors really popped and the details showed beautifully detailed paintbrush strokes:
Keep your eyes out for Jean Jullien's work or follow him on Instagram. Warmly recommended :)
