***************************Artist Bio**************************
Julian Peña (°1985, Okinawa, Japan) is a visual artist and studied at the University of Washington School of Art. His works are informed by values taken from what it means to be mixed race as a 1.5-generation citizen, and our almost dystopian society. He is strongly influenced by his background as a LGBTQ person of color in contemporary America.
His passion for color relationships, meticulous studio art techniques, and arresting varieties of textures dominate his work. These passions greatly concoct his many eccentric narratives he conceives from this world. Peña’s works provide commentary on the complexities of cultural assimilation.
Peña is largely involved with the local art community and beyond. He has earned six scholarships, was voted best artist in South Sound Magazine’s Best of South Sound contest for two consecutive years (2012/2013), participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions, produced various art-related events, and commissions. Julian Pena currently lives and works in Seattle, Washington.
