Mady Julian is a Los Angeles born artist. She began her career as a naïve painter in the 1970’s. The mid 1980’s saw the beginning of her television writing career so she set aside painting and turned to collage and decoupage.
In 2016, inspired by her early years in Paris and a lifelong crush on Joseph Cornell, she began making kiosks, combining her love of assemblage with a love of books. The range of materials in the kiosk bodies can include original drawings and paintings, vintage postcards and wallpaper, old letters, magazine pages and manuals, figurines, medals, tote bags – anything that isn’t nailed down but can be. The books and playing cards are an homage to the wonderful graphic artists of the past and the toppers are found objects that simply match the mood of the piece.
