Julio's paintings and prints are typically clear and well constructed compositions. Julio's use of bold colours are effective to create an emotional impact. The contrasting colours create areas of light and shade, drawing viewers typically into the images.



The paintings in this section are about observing things that impact me in some way, being political, personal or social. In particular, I had always enjoyed capturing images which “showed the world what no one really cares to talk about.”

"Julio is a cool cat. I became aware of his work when I used one of his paintings as the poster image for an exhibition I was curating on the Southbank. It was the stand out piece of the exhibition. His work is vibrant, intelligent, relevant, and quirky. I love his work. Welcome to his world."
