Julian Pace, born in Seattle in 1988 and currently living and working in Los Angeles, is a self-taught artist whose pop-historical portraits draw from his experiences living in Florence for six years and his current home in New York. While his world is populated by behemoths of art history, pop culture, and sports, Pace also includes more niche characters and personal friends in his work. His distinctive visual perspective and skillful figuration make his art immediately recognizable.
One of Pace's recurring themes is the use of basketball players as his subjects. His portraits often depict these athletes with their imposing shoulders and reputations, but Pace also conveys a more nuanced intimacy through their expressions and his careful use of color. He treats each subject with a balance of reverence and familiarity, regardless of their status as a casual acquaintance or an icon.
Prior to his career in art, Pace worked as a pre-school teacher. His work has recently been showcased in exhibitions at Spazio Amanita in New York, Simchowitz in Los Angeles, The Cabin in Los Angeles, and The Pit in Los Angeles.
