About julian st clair

I'm from London UK. and was born in 1952. I've been resident in St.Ives, Cornwall UK for 30 years.
I've been painting and occasionally exhibiting since the 70's and studied at Hammersmith school of art in London.
Always fascinated by the Golden Age of popular culture much of the imagery that finds it's way into my paintings comes from this time. I find the distance of time brings about a poetry that greatly appeals to me which I would describe as nostalgia without sentimentality.


In 2015 I had a solo three year traveling exhibition of twelve of my paintings that took place in venues in three countries, Belgium, France and Germany.
I've had several solo exhibitions in London and Cornwall and many mixed exhibitions in the UK and mainland Europe and have work in several permanent collections including the Copelouzos Art Museum in Athens.
