Julie Kuyath was born in New Mexico and raised in England. She studied Fine Art at Hull University before pursuing a postgraduate qualification in Silversmithing and Jewellery Design at London Guildhall University.
Julie’s surreal collages are inspired by mythology, symbolism and folklore.
Each piece is constructed using a meticulous process of hand-cutting magazine pages into circles and strips, before arranging them on canvas. Precision is everything, but these painstaking, time intensive working methods also retain an almost painterly energy and vigour. Julie’s background in fashion allows her to blend opulent decoration with a keen underlying sense of composition and design.
