Born in 1980 in France, Julien Vinet works and lives in Malta.


Julien Vinet is a painter, engraver, illustrator and designer currently based in Malta. Following studies in Fine Arts at Paris VIII and Visual Communications at Jean Trubert Art School, Vinet discovered the strength of black and white – a passion that lead him to Japan where he lived for 8 years, studying calligraphy and engraving. Deeply influenced by Japanese culture, Vinet’s chiefly monochromatic body of work conveys a kinetic depth, a constantly changing and layered representation of subject through fragmented and reconstructed line. Vinet’s work has been the subject of several solo shows in Tokyo, Paris, Marseille and Malta, and has participated in a number of international group exhibitions.
