Julieanne held her first solo exhibition with Pablo Gallery earlier this year and has had some original artworks consigned with us at our shop. She has an upcoming exhibition this December with GreySpace MNL. Regarding the works she has for First Edition:

“My works are formed in an arrangement that manifests psychedelic images. In these trying times, it serves as a form of meditation and a means as a coping mechanism.”

What music did you have growing up?

Growing up I loved listening to disney songs and classics like Sarah Brightman and Josh Groban.

What work of art last caught your eye?

The last work of art that caught my eye were the works of Juan Alcazaren and Tiffany Lafuente. 

Can you let us in on a current or upcoming project that excites you?

I’m looking forward to next year’s art fair events. I’m curious to see how this pandemic challenges the way we respond to the changes at hand. 

We’re playing charades. What is the hardest thing you could have someone guess?

While playing charades, the hardest thing I could have someone guess is the song title “Superkalafrgalisticexbealidoshish”.

What do you think deserves more attention?
