About Julien Spianti

Born in 1982.
painter, filmaker
Works and lives in Paris

Since 2007, my research in drawing and painting focuses on the issue of family ties that I hear as a metaphor for relations and power in today's society. To this end, I wholeheartedly support on mythological or biblical stories. Telescoped in today's world, they allow me to express what is a central concern in my work: the lack of significant difference between the mythological time and history, between documentary and fiction. Meanwhile, a question keeps coming up: why is it often that guilt is the consequence of punishment. This is this amazing reversal (punishment and then, crime) which I try to speak of.
