Born in Birmingham, England, Julian has lived and worked in France since 1990. After graduating from the Slade School of Art in London, he turned his attention to woodworking, in particular the creation of complex shapes with invented joints.
In the 1950s, jazz musicians in the United States used to say "shut up and show up", which means, "stop the blah-blah-blah and start playing". Don't listen to the artists, look at their work.
Julian Schwarz's sculptures are inspired by urns, an elemental, symbolic and utilitarian form. They are carved from a single block of wood, taken from one side of the trunk to avoid the central axis and minimize cracks.
