The process consists in playing with that which is deconstructed, erased, but developing something else that is born at the same time. Where one thing ends, another, new thing begins. The energy released by this destructuring can give rise to unexpected forms that become innovative, generating a new form inconceivable before. The Indian ink-based technique creates raw yet subtle forms that play with what is shown and what is not, producing suspended images. Taking the form of dreamlike images where time has stopped.


Julien Fallesen was born on January 11, 1996, in Brussels. He is a graduate of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Visuels de La Cambre, earning his Bachelor’s degree in 2019 and his Master’s degree in 2021.

Artistic Focus: Julien Fallesen’s drawings and paintings consistently explore the theme of destruction and reconstruction through creation. His works serve as reflections on the fragility of architectural, economic, and social structures. The pieces delve into the concepts of destruction, reconstruction, and transformation as catalysts for renewal. While the works portray a destructive tendency, the act of destruction is depicted not as violent but as transformative, aiming to establish visual relationships in space.

Techniques and Media: To express his artistic quest for renewal, Julien Fallesen employs various techniques and media such as tempera, charcoal, Indian ink, and acrylic paint. The constant desire to explore new techniques and media remains a driving force behind his artistic endeavors.

Artistic Philosophy: In essence, Fallesen’s work seeks to rediscover the freedom of art by liberating itself from the constraints of political commitment or combat. It proposes a more direct, raw confrontation with the viewer, emphasizing the process of discovery, incorporation, and appropriation.

Awards: Nominated for the Prix Elisabeth Burdot.
