Julian Pace’s (b. 1988, Seattle, WA) pop-historical portraits reflect his experiences living in Florence, where he was based for six years, and New York, where he currently resides. A completely self-taught artist, his world is populated by behemoths of art history, pop culture and sports, as well as more niche characters and personal friends. Pace’s distinct visual perspective and skillful figuration renders his work immediately recognizable. His subjects’ imposing shoulders and reputations might dwarf the viewer, but their expressions and Pace’s careful color choices often convey a more nuanced intimacy. Whether the person Pace is focusing on is a casual acquaintance or an icon, he treats each subject with a balance of reverence and familiarity.
