Julien Vallée and his studio do an incredible job of creating digitally influenced ideas but for real. His concepts aren’t always dominant but his execution is his staple for sure. Julien has an eye for a surreal aesthetic. When looking at Julien’s work, his studio manages to tease the viewer. Figuring out what is actually going on in the composition is the fun of it, but they never give you too much time to break it down. Brevity gives Julien’s studio much character.
