In his work for HOT MESS, Julian Simon is showing two paintings both dealing with the topic of movement and optical effects. With a keen interest in impressionistic painting, Julian attempts to capture and translate the impression given by a camera and the interaction between the camera and the artist himself. Starting from references, he slowly moves away from them as the painting develops, freely editing and collaging individual parts of the image on the canvas.
Julian Simon (b.1994) is a painter and visual artist residing in Berlin. He is currently still studying fine arts / painting in his last year at Kunsthochschule Weissensee , Berlin.
