Julian's artistic focus is on celebrating unique identities. He uses art to explore people's personalities expressed externally, as well as to bask in the beauty of human diversity. "Nonbinary Prince Charming" is Julian's take on a classic fairytale trope. He uses a dreamy, illustrative style to uplift his Prince Charming as a magnificent, handsome figure. "Shiny Girl" is Julian's interpretation of a class prompt, "portray something shiny." He immediately thought of glowing skin and reflective clothing. His intention is to capture his subject's beauty in a unique and whimsical way. Both of these pieces reflect Julian's love of portraits as a means to revere human beauty.
