Beach London Gallery presents until September 29th 'La Plage' exhibition, a series of limited-edition prints designed by the French artist and illustrator Jean Jullien, during the London Design Festival 2013.
The work in La Plage draws inevitable comparison to the infamous British seaside postcards from the early twentieth century by the likes of Donald McGill; eschewing the overt suggestiveness, and replacing it with a more subtle, intelligent humour - made possible by Jullien’s outstanding understanding of composition.
La Plage builds upon Jullien’s recent London exhibitions 'Allo?' at Kemistry Gallery and at Pick Me Up, Somerset House, in presenting sharp-witted visual puns that explore human interaction and social behaviours - in this case, at the Beach.
Jean Jullien is an artist and illustrator living and working in London. A Royal College of Art MA graduate, Jullien has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting artists working in London today, producing a coherent body of work full of bold graphics and clever wordplay.
