Epaul Julien is a self taught artist who began his career as a fine are photographer in 1995 when a near death experience changed his life forever. On August 30, 2005 when Hurrican Katrina struck New Orleans he knew how he was going to navigate the waters. Creating art for him is a necessity. It is a vital part of his existence. In the wake of Katrina he felt abandoned by his photography because he could not pack a giant enlarger, darkroom chemicals and the other bulky, cumbersome equipment in one day and evacuate from his beloved city. In exile for six months he decided to use images he salvaged from the storm, expression, light, energy, spirit, movement, texture and value to create his new mixed media art. Epaul was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and raised on his families Plantation. Africa Plantation 45 minutes northwest of New Orleans, on the west bank of the Mississippi River, in the small town of Modeste. For him, Africa Plantation was a spiritual place that put him in touch with nature and stimulated his imagination. As a young child, he would climb to the very top of Africa with his little brother. Under the stars and moon he would tell stories of how he was going to travel around the world. At some point between the time he spent on Africa’s hot tin roof and his father teaching him how to use his Nikon FT2, he began to travel through the world of fine art photography. Since 2005 my journey has taken me into a new world of mixed media fine art and who knows what’s next. Julien’s work (photography and mixed media) has been exhibited in the United States, New Orleans Museum of Art, the Louisiana State Museum, Houston’s DiverseWorks, the Darkroom (New Orleans), Stella Jones Gallery (New Orleans), Arps Gallery (Amsterdam) and DeGalerieDenHaag (the Hague)M.IA Milan Image Art Fair, Milan, Italy. His Katrina series has been catalogued in the New Orleans Museum of Art’s Katrina Exposed (2006). In 2010, the University of New Orleans Press, published the book, Before During After: Louisiana Photographers Visual Reactions to Hurricane Katrina, a companion to the international traveling exhibition. Julien's work has been covered by the Washington Post, Washington Times, Houston Chronicle, Greater Houston Weekly, Louisiana Life Magazine, Kunst & Antiek Journaal, More than Classic, and many other international newspapers and magazines. His work is held in museums and private collections in the United States and Europe.
