jean jullien is best known for creating cheerful characters that he cuts out of paper and captures in photographs. his simple, appealing scenes got a big break on the website Manystuff in 2008 while he was still in art school, and since then his work has appeared in The Guardian and The New York Times, and on a host of design blogs.
jullien studied graphic design at the french school Le Paraclet and then at Central St. Martin’s, and is now enrolled at the Royal College of Art. he comes by both his visual inclinations and his fascination with three-dimensional forms honestly: his mother is an architect and a curator, and his father is a town planner. he says that he and his brother, a musician, were “always shown design and art.”
